Expressing concern about women security in the country, the Union Government today said it was trying to ensure deployment of police women in all police stations across the country rather than having all-women police stations.
Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said, “Our police stations should be women-oriented and more women should be in security forces, paramilitary forces and in police. We are for deployment of police women in all police stations rather than having all-women police stations.
Speaking at a function organized by ASSOCHAM in the Capital, Rijiju said people’s participation and cooperation is necessary for safety of citizens.
He stressed the need for Central Government taking the lead in collaborating with all concerned stakeholders to bolster the homeland security scenario in the country.
