Indore: Soon the women in Indore might be seen blowing whistle to tackle harassment by eve-teasers.
The Indore police is planning to hand over the whistles to women who frequently walk out on streets and often face harassment from rowdies.
Senior police officers including DIG Harinarayanchari Mishra and others have been busy seeking suggestions from the pubic to improve city police functioning.
One Amit Sikarwar has come with a suggestion to provide whistles to girls and women so that they can blow it whenever they are teased. This will in turn attract the attention of the people who could come to the rescue of the victims.
“It seems a practical idea and we are looking into this proposal,” an officer from Indore police said.
Sikarwar also said he wants to help police in their effort to control crime against women.
Interestingly, Indore being the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh also records high crime rate.
