Special cells for women

Police Commissioner A.K.Viswanathan inaugurated a special cell on the campus of the All Women Police Station at Thousand Lights. These cells will deal with grievances of women affected by violent crimes, domestic violence, marital disputes and civil disputes as well.

It would have specially trained counsellors who would help women to register complaints and get medical and legal assistance. The affected women would be provided with socio legal services and child survivors of violence would get access to the criminal justice system.These cells are a part of the pilot project that has been established with support from the National Commission for Women.
