The UT Police's drive against outraging the modesty of women and offenders doesn't seem to have gone down well with the boys of the city who claim to be 'restricted', as the drive continues to gain momentum throughout the city and number of complaints increase.
An interactive session was organised for students of Guru Gobind Singh College for Women (GGSCW) and Sri Guru Gobind Singh College (SGGSC) with Chandigarh' s newly appointed Inspector General of Police (IGP) R P Upadhyaya at the Mata Ganga Auditorium of the GGSCW.
Navneet, a 3rd year student of Bsc, SGGSC, said that the boys felt restricted in the present environment. The comment invited a sharp reaction from the IGP, who said that no one would be allowed to break rules of the city.
While speaking on the anti-drunken drive that was carried out by the police on February 9, the IGP said, "Despite advertising it for five days, we were forced to issue challans in 61 cases".
When asked about the security of girls in city buses, Naunihal Singh, SSP of Chandigarh said, "The problem is that 99 per cent cases of eve-teasing in buses are not being reported, while 99 per cent of such cases that happen in cars and other means of transport are being reported. The only solution to the problem is zero tolerance against such attempts, and we want girls to report even the smallest case of eve-teasing in buses".
"After the initiative taken by the Chandigarh Police, the number of eve- teasing cases to be reported have substantially gone up. Between October 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013, 313 cases of eve-teasing were reported on telephone, of which we registered 103 cases and arrested 113 people," he added. He also lauded the girl students for the collaborative effort with the police against eve-teasing.
