In what comes as morale booster for women cops in the department, police commissioner Bhaskar Rao and DCP Isha Pant launched 'Team Shaurya' a women-only patrol team.
In all, 25 members in bikes and four-wheelers will patrol Bengaluru’s South East Division including 8 dangerous zones where many instances of harassment have been reported
The team, which is also trained in mixed martial arts, is equipped to handle situations. The idea was to strike a balance between both men and women patrol teams as the DCP feels both women and men are equal in uniform.
