Notify thana-level committees: DCW Chief tells LG Jung
Expressing concerns over non-notification of thana-level committees despite increasing crimes against women, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal on Monday urged Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung to notify the panels “without any further delay”. “I am writing to you to express serious concerns over the fact that thana-level committees which were to be notified by your esteemed self in Delhi have not been notified till date after the change of government. I have been informed the file for the same has been pending in your office since long,” Maliwal said in a letter to Jung.
The DCW chief also stated that the committees perform number of functions including checking crime in their respective areas, resolving grievances and promoting police-public interaction among others. Citing the rule that the meeting of thana-level committees are mandated to be held once in two months, Maliwal lamented that the same have not been constituted in Delhi for the past nine months.
