Haryana Launches Operation Durga to Crack Down on Eve Teasers & Ensure Women Safety

Haryana has always been in the headlines for its ever increasing crime rates across the state. Therefore, to curb down criminal instances in Haryana and to provide women safety, the Haryana Police has initiated a massive campaign ‘Operation Durga’, recently.

Purpose of constituting Operation Durga

Under this campaign, 72 people indulging in criminal offense against women got caught by a team of 24 flying squads constituted by Chief Minister at public places across Haryana. The flying squads visited schools, colleges, bus stands, railway station to nab the eve teasers who were later handed over to the local police. Not only this, women police stations are also established by the Haryana Government across the state for the convenience of the women complainants. These women police station are equipped with safe environment for women to lodge a complaint.

The campaign was launched to recognise places across the state that are affected by eve teasing and other anti- socila elements against women that can hamper the social, mental, physical and economical well being.

The campaign was launched yesterday with a team of a woman personnel, 9 Sub-inspectors, 14 Assistant Sub-inspectors, 6 Head Constables and 13 Constables along with other police personnel across different districts of Haryana.

How will Operation Durga benefit women 

Haryana is one state in India that had witnessed maximum numbers of female feticide, honor killings, illegitimate ruling of Khap panchayats against women and illiteracy in the past. The Operation Durga now aims to transform that picture of Haryana women and work towards women empowerment. Also, the police who were earlier did morale policing will now thrive towards providing women across the state, a better an safer environment to live in.

Let’ see that the mission taken by the government of India and the state government does actually work in the interest of women of Haryana or it will just remain in the books.
