‘State will soon have a women protection wing’

An exclusive State-level women protection wing will be set soon to handle cases/complaints pertaining to them, Minister for Home and Disaster Management M. Sucharita has said.
“The exclusive wing is just the beginning of our continuous focus on women safety. It will be headed by a senior officer and be vested with powers to handle issues such as harassment, eve teasing, dowry cases, and missing of minors. A toll-free number will also be allotted to the wing. It will be set up at the A.P. Police Headquarters,” Ms. Sucharita told The Hindu.
“The State Police are also planning to set up more SHE teams and Shakti teams - an all women police teams in the districts, which will function under the proposed women protection wing. The modalities for setting up the wing are being worked out,” the Home Minister said.
The initiative is in addition to the exclusive women battalions, which are among the four new battalions that have been given administrative sanction.
Ms. Sucharita, the first Dalit Home Minister of the State, also said Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy had scripted a new history by giving her an opportunity to serve as Home Minister.
