Nirbhaya scheme: 108 police stations to have counselors to deal with woman and child cases in Bengaluru
Eight years after special funding under Nirbhaya scheme for safety and to address issues of women, the Bengaluru City police is set to appoint exclusive women counselors in law and order police stations under its limits.
City Police Commissioner Kamal Pant says, henceforth if a woman or a child case comes to the station, they can freely express concern and get help as expert counselors will be available in each police station.
Sometimes a civil case of a family dispute case is reported in police stations. Such cases can be sent to 'Parihar' family counseling center for better results and incase of child cases the issue can be diverted to the child line center.
