Telangana Police to Establish Call Center for Women in Grief

Hyderabad: June 23 ( PMI ) Continuing its efforts to ensure women’s safety in the state, the Telangana Police will soon introduce another initiative to help women facing domestic violence. Concerned about the increasing number of calls received by the police from women facing domestic violence, the Telangana Police Department’s Women’s Safety Wing (WSW) has decided to assist women in distress, including providing advice online.
After waving the whip against teasers through SHE teams regularly and initiating severe action against women who harass women via mobile phones, WSW has decided to start an app-based call centre to help women facing domestic violence. The number of phone calls received by the department from such women increased after the lockdown was imposed to curb the spread of Covid-19 during the second wave. Some women complained that their husbands beat them regularly, while others complained of the inconvenience created by their drunken husbands. There were also complaints against men forcibly expelling their wives from their homes.( PMI )
