The committee to look into issues related to the safety and security of women and girls which was formed by the Telangana government has submitted its report on Monday to the state government. The report has come with a series of suggestions to the state government to make the state a safe place for women and girls.
“We have submitted the report on Saturday after feedback from speaking to women from various sections of the society,” said Poonam Malakondaiah, chairperson of the committee.
The report has suggested 75 measures to the state government. A few key recommendations include setting up of a forensic science lab in Hyderabad, Karimnagar, Warangal, Nizamabad and Mahbubnagar, and improving the Hyderabad DNA lab.
“The FSL report must come in 10 days, doctors’ report in three days, doctor’s short opinion in one day, potency test in three days, DNA test in 30 days and the chargesheet in 90 days. Women rakshaks, similar to the Delhi Police, should be started in the police commissionerates and district headquarters,” the report stated.
“TS ranks second with AP in the country for the supply of women and children for the purposes of prostitution and sex trafficking. About 20,000 women and children are sold every year from the region,” the report mentioned.
