Addressing a review meeting on the Disha Act at his camp office on Thursday, Mr. Jagan Mohan Reddy called for speedy investigation of cases, particularly those involving women and gave the green signal for filling one DSP, three sub-inspector and four support staff posts in each one of 18 women police stations.

The CM gave his nod for recruiting 13 public prosecutors and creating the necessary infrastructure in the women police stations for implementing the Disha Act (A.P. Criminal Law Amendment Act, 2019).

Director General of Police D.

Standard operating procedures were being evolved for implementing the Disha Act.”
