'No plans for anti-Romeo squads in state'

Home Minister G Parameshwara on Friday said the government had no plans to set up anti-Romeo squads on the lines of those in Uttar Pradesh.

“There is no need for anti-Romeo squads in the state as our police are capable of nabbing those committing crimes against women. The government will set up a stronger squad than anti-Romeo squads if crimes against women and  eve-teasing cases go up,” he told reporters during his visit to the All Women’s Station at Shivajinagar. The police station was shifted to Shivajinagar TTMC.

“The government would soon start patrolling by women police personnel in the city to ensure safety of women and children,” he said.

“The government has taken steps to strengthen 35 women’s police stations across the state,” he said.
