Delhi Police to recruit more women
The Delhi Police will soon launch a special drive to recruit female constables and officers and appoint more women personnel in police stations to instill confidence among women.

‘I have directed the Delhi Police to launch a special drive for recruiting women. We will hire more women in the Delhi Police,’ Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde told reporters here.

Shinde said he has also instructed authorities concerned to deploy at least one woman officer in each of the capital’s 166 police stations.

‘Every police station should have women police personnel. I have also suggested that each of the 166 police stations in Delhi should have at least one woman police officer. But we do not have that many numbers of police officers. But I told them whatever possible should be deployed till we recruit more women,’ he said.

The Home Minister’s statement comes in the backdrop of public protests over the gangrape of a 23-year-old girl in the capital on 16 December.

Asked about the condition of the girl, who is currently undergoing treatment in Singapore, Shinde said her condition continues to be critical.

He dismissed reports which suggested that doctors at Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital, where the girl was treated till Wednesday, were sidelined while taking a decision to send her abroad for better treatment, saying it was their (doctors at Safdarjung) opinion to send her abroad.
