Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray orders police
Mumbai: The tingle of mothers and sisters will not be tolerated. Measures for their safety will not be compromised. The police will be given full support for this. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Monday directed the police to take necessary action to stop the perpetrators of atrocities.
The Chief Minister was speaking at a review meeting of the Home Department on women and child safety. Home Minister Dilip Walse-Patil and other police officials were present at the meeting held at the office of the Director General of Police.
We have to consider what efforts can be made as a policy on women’s security in the state. Attempts will have to be made in collaboration with the Center as to whether at least night shelter can be provided for women taking shelter in sidewalks, railway stations and bus stands. The basics need to be addressed as a policy so that there is no shortage of facilities. In many cases, it is demanded that the investigation be handed over to the central authorities. We have competently investigated many such cases. Therefore, everyone has to take responsibility so that the morale of the police is not eroded by such reactions. The perpetrators of violence against women will have to be warned and punished. For that, all the efforts of the police will be supported by the government.
The report of the Joint Committee on State Power Act will be presented in the forthcoming Legislative Assembly, Home Minister Dilip Walse-Patil said.
Judgment comes quickly from the courts. But efforts should be made to improve the execution of the sentence and further court proceedings. Tomorrow (Tuesday) meeting of the Policy Commission should suggest policy reforms in the functioning of fast-track courts. Emphasis will also be placed on amending the Shakti Act. Women police should seek information by communicating with the victim women in good faith. Chief Minister Thackeray also warned that even their minor grievances should not be ignored.
Instructions for keeping records of foreigners
Those coming from foreign countries have to be recorded. We have to know where they come from and where they go, said Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. It was observed that rickshaws were used in the crime. Unauthorized transfer of rickshaws should be stopped. While registering the matter, the Chief Minister suggested that the concerned licensee should be required to provide information to the local police.
