New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi today told a group of Parliamentarians that there is zero tolerance for eve-teasers and people misbehaving with women and instructions have been given to police to attend immediately to any such complainant and suo-motu action.
Giving a presentation at a meeting of the consultative committee of MPs attached to the Home Ministry, Bassi briefed on various steps taken by the Delhi Police for anti-human trafficking and safety and security of women.
The Delhi Police has taken various initiatives to provide safety to women such as launching of the Mobile App ‘Himmat’, setting up of women help desks 24×7 in all police stations.
