Website for women, kids to file complaints

Taking serious note of women’s safety and security in the national capital, special police unit for  women and children launched its official website on Tuesday where victims can easily approach them through email.

“The programme urged the need to start such websites in all government departments to ensure women participation and two-way communication process. There is a need for more programmes at the grassroot level,” said Mamta Sharma, chairperson of National Commission for Women, who was also the chief guest at the launch of the website, www.spuwac.com.

Sharma added that the initiative taken by the Delhi Police to help women should be replicated by all states so that more women, including those in villages, can get its benefit.

“Delhiites will see more active campaigns regarding ‘crime against women’ in the days to come through various social networking sites to ensure a better feedback,” said Suman Nalwa, additional deputy commissioner of police (SPUWC).

She highlighted features like ‘question and answer’, how to file complaints and seek help. The website will also be made available in Hindi.
