It is really good and uplifting to see that women’s safety is one of the major concerns of the government, and adequate steps are being taken towards it.
Recently, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath formed an Anti-Romeo squad to curb instances of harassment of girls and eve-teasing. And now, the Haryana government is the new state to join this Anti-Romeo league with the same motive.
The Haryana government has launched the movement ‘Operation Durga’, that comprises of woman personnel, including nine Sub-inspectors of Police, 14 Assistant Sub-inspectors, six Head Constables and 13 constables, and other police officers from each district.
On the very first day, 72 people from 14 different districts were arrested by this anti-harassment operation.
The official spokesperson of the squad said,
Twenty-four teams formed by Chief Minister’s Flying Squad nabbed these people from all the districts for allegedly indulging in crimes against women. The teams visited public places such as schools, colleges, bus stands and railway stations and nabbed persons indulging in crimes against women, including eve teasing.
According to TOI, Kurukshetra saw a maximum of 12 youths being detained, with the teams being posted outside D N College and Sanjay Gandhi Girls’ School.
The other districts where the teams were active included: Yamunanagar, Kaithal, Hisar, Dadri, Bhiwani, Sirsa, Karnal, Rohtak, Jhajjar, Sonipat, Rewari, Faridabad, Gurugram, and Fatehabad.
This operation is being conducted under the close observation of CM Manohar Lal Khattar. Amit Arya, media adviser to CM Manohar Lal, accepted that this move was inspired by the UP government,
It routine exercise for the flying squad and justified taking a cue from the UP government. What is wrong in following good moves of their states? So far as this exercise is concerned, we have carried out it on the basis of complaints received from various sources.
