`Issues related to women should be handled with care'
SALEM: West Zone Inspector General of Police (IG) A. Subramanian on Tuesday inspected mobile counselling centre's vehicles given to women police to deal with issues related to women.
Mr. Subramanian had told the policewomen that the mobile centres had been given to meet women in distress on their doorsteps. Issues related to women should be handled legally and with care. Issues related to dowry, harassment, violence etc. should be dealt with severely. The Government attached importance to issues of women.
Five vehicles for these counselling centres had been provided to Salem zone, including one each for the district and Salem city. The west zone, he said, had 10 vehicles. The police should utilise them properly.
