Several women officials, advocates, lecturers and representatives of civil society groups on Friday favoured establishment of separate women’s grievance cells and fast track courts to dispose of the petitions related to crime against women as early as possible.

They expressed their ideas at a programme ‘Avanipai Ativa’ organised at Aditya Institute of Technology and Management (AITAM) at Tekkali.

SC Corporation Executive Director Ch.Mahalakshmi said women should not misuse their freedom and follow the Indian tradition and culture. AIDWA State regional secretary P.Prabhavati and AIDWA Srikakulam convener K. Nagamani hoped that quick justice would instil confidence among victims and act as a deterrent for the accused persons in rape cases.

Assistant Public Prosecutor Santhi Gowthami sought separate grievance cells to resolve the women problems in society.

College chairman K. Someswara Rao and director V.V. Nageswra Rao said equal respect should be given to women in society.

Several students also expressed their ideas in the meet and urged the government to take stern action against the culprits who involved in the gang-rape in New Delhi.
