Aapka Update

          A new initiative has been takenbyDelhi Police to inform the complainants about progress oftheircomplaints/cases on the preference mode of communication via SMS, phonecalls,post, personal visit etc.  You can also visit the Police Station andget anupdate every Saturday between  4 PM to6 PM. 


              Sexual assault/harassment of girls often takes place in their own homes,educational institutions, workplaces and often committed by their ownrelatives/known-persons, neighbors, friends of relatives and acquaintances.While a number of modes are available to general public to seek help frompolice, there seems to be a complete absence of any such specialized forum forthe victims in school/college going age group to effectively report suchcrimes. ‘Nirbhik’ is aninitiative which aims at reaching out to victims of the most heinous and hiddencrimes of society, which often leaves a young girl violated and wronged by thevery persons they trust.


              Under ‘Nirbhik’, Delhi Police officials visit all girls only as well as co-edschools and interact with the girl students. They organize interaction sessionswith the girl students in which they try to built a rapport with them, talk toabout functioning of Delhi Police in order to instill a sense of confidence.They then use audio/visual tools to explain to the students the concept of‘Good touch & Bad touch’ and what constitutes physical & sexual abuse.




         Securityof their children is one of the key concern of working parents. Whileeducatedparents try to have a support mechanism in their absence, children oftheworkers from the underprivileged sections are the most vulnerable. Inmanycases, small kinds tend to lose their way or fall prey to organized gangsofcriminals or kidnappers. Their families, out of ignorance and poverty, donotkeep even basic record such as photographs which would help thepoliceidentify, trace and rescue them, if needed. Delhi Police launched auniqueinitiative called Pehchan to bridge this information gap.

         Inthis programme, officials visit slums and take family photographs ofchildren atrisk. They print their names and other details on the photo andgift them to therespective family while retaining a copy for the officialrecords. This databankof pictures serves as a key resource for tracking andrescuing missing children.The programme hasal ready been implemented in areaswhere maximum number ofchildren go missing.
