Shobha wants special police team to trace missing women

Bangalore, Nov 21, 2012, DHNS:

Energy Minister Shobha Karandlaje has demanded that a special team be constituted to investigate cases of missing women, which are on the rise in the State.  

She was speaking at the inauguration of the Kengeri traffic police station on Wednesday.

Karandlaje, the legislator from Yeshwantpur, said women were being trafficked for prostitution and other purposes. There was absolutely no safety for women and they were living in fear, she said.


“I request Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister R Ashoka and senior police officers to constitute a special team to investigate such cases.”

More staff required

“My constituency is too large and a number of crimes take place in Talaghattapura. So, I request Police Commissioner Jyothi Prakash Mirji to take steps to include Talaghattapura in the jurisdiction of the Bangalore City Police Commissionerate and provide more staff for the police station. The City has just over 2,900 traffic policemen, which is highly insufficient. The Home Minister should take measures to provide more men,” she said. She thanked Ashoka for sanctioning the traffic police station in her constituency.

After inaugurating the station, Ashoka said Bangalore City was growing in all directions, but the police strength had not increased proportionately. Mirji announced on the occasion that two more traffic police stations would come up at Jalahalli and Hulimavu shortly.

Public Eye launched


The much-awaited initiative of the Bangalore traffic police, Public Eye, was launched by Home Minister R Ashoka during the inauguration of the Kengeri traffic police station.

The public can help the police make Bangalore an accident-free and traffic violation-free City. The citizens can film those violating traffic norms on their cellphones or cameras and upload the footage on the police website - www.bangaloretrafficpolice.gov.in
The names of those filming the violations would be kept confidential.
