CISF to help late night women commuters in Delhi Metro

CISF to help late night women  commuters in Delhi Metro
To ensure better security to women travelling by Delhi Metro during late hours, CISF has deployed special teams of its “mahila” personnel to assist such commuters in safely getting public transport to home.

The security force has tasked its women officials and commandos posted in the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) network to not only help female passengers who travel late in night within the station area but also assist them in hiring local transport like an auto, rickshaw or a bus to their place of residence.

The force has deployed over 4,800 personnel (both men and women) to secure 136 stations of the DMRC in Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and Gurgaon.

“We have asked our women personnel to help female passengers who have to travel late in the night. They (women personnel) will help them in select stations which get secluded during night. 
“As part of these measures, our women personnel even note down the number of the auto or the public transport vehicle in which the women passengers were seen off by them.

“This creates a psychological effect in the minds of people that they are being watched and tracked when they are dealing with women passengers and it also gives women a better sense of security,” CISF Director General Arvind Ranjan told reporters during an annual conference on the eve of the forces’ 46th Raising Day here.

Meanwhile, Haryana Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki on Monday said for ensuring better transportation and mobility in the NCR, Metro lines covering about 28 kilometer are under construction in the state.
