Lecture highlights functioning of all-women police stations

Focus also on laws meant for women’s protection

“Marital disputes are matters that we get in large numbers”

Cases of unwed mothers also get reported

PUDUCHERRY: Did you know that the personnel at the All Women Police Stations in Puducherry and Karaikal regions don’t expect to go directly to them if you have a problem?

You can call them at 0413 2336178 and tell them about the problem.

FIR not filed

“Marital disputes among couples are matters that we get in large numbers in our stations. We don’t file an FIR in such matters but counsel the family and help them resolve the issue amicably. The Villianur Station sees around 30-40 cases every month” explained S. Anjammal, Inspector, All Women Police Station.

Combined camp

She was addressing a batch of NCC cadets, who are attending a combined annual training camp (Inter-Group Competition cum Republic Day selection) at the NCC complex at Lawspet on Wednesday.

Ms. Anjammal was delivering a special lecture on various problems that women face, laws meant for their protection and the functioning of the all women police station.

“Sometimes cases of women who want to move away from their mothers in law come to us. Our stations see a lot of cases of unwed mothers. This is because of the innocence of the girls, the lack of proper parental care and also lack of education,” explained Ms. Anjammal.

The staff of the All Women Police Station has been training girl students of schools and colleges on self defence.

Saplings planted

As part of social service activities at the camp, cadets planted around 500 saplings on October 1.

According to a press release from Camp Commandant Lt Colonel A. S. Narayan, P. Devaraj, Conservator of Forests, inaugurated the planting, also as a part of World Wildlife Week celebrations.
