The Hyderabad Cyberabad Police flagged off three Dial 100 quick response vehicles manned by female police personnel exclusively for women, along with a SHE shuttle bus at ‘ShePahi’, the first of its kind annual conference for women police. Over 750 women personnel took part in the one-day conference. While ‘She’ stands for strength and humanity, ‘pahi’ means good work.
Actress Anushka Shetty, who flagged off special vehicles, lauded the police. “We are the reel stars, you are the real stars,” she said. The Bahubali actor, Anushka who also gave away awards to police and civilians for their service, said the sacrifices of police are supreme.
Swati Lakra, additional director general of police (ADGP), Women Safety Wing, said that every woman police is on par with her male counterpart. “Fifty percent of the population is women. There should be 50% women in the police force too,” she said. Swati Lakra said there is no gender bias in the police. She said in 2021, Bharosa centers, which provide support to women and children who have faced abuse, will be opened at 10 places. There are four currently.
