Media lauded for helping to curb crime against women

By ANN Service

SIVASAGAR, May 18 - While addressing a largely-attended awareness meeting organised by Sachetan Nagarik Moncha (a forum of socially-conscious citizens) on �Stop Crime against Women� at Sivasgar Natya Mandir today, Director General of Police (Special Branch) Pallov Bhattacharjya said that crime against women were there in the past too, but a majority of them went unreported.

Bhattacharjya said that present-day media often highlights most of the crimes committed against women and children and therefore it appears that crimes against women are on the rise.

However, the DGP (Special Branch) lauded the role of the media as it helps the law enforcing authorities in nabbing the culprits. He called upon all, especially the women to assist the State police in curbing atrocities against womenfolk.

Reflecting on the present situation, Bhattacharjya said that the peaceful situation prevailing in the State suddenly took a u-turn once the NRC updation process began in Barpeta district and the divisive forces compelled the Government to stall the work.

The ongoing NRC updation process now has also been disrupted by angry agitations against certain amendment legislations. But the JPC visit is part of a healthy functioning of our vibrant democracy. There is nothing to create a law and order situation and the public should cooperate with the JPC rather peacefully.

The meeting, presided over by Dipali Bhattacharjya Boruah was addressed, among others, by Subodh Sonowal, Sivasagar Superintendent of Police.

Sonowal in his speech claimed that the mobile phone culture has brought in a change in attitude towards women, which is far from healthy. He urged upon all to provide first information to the district police whenever a crime against women and children is noticed. Sivasagar Police has been relentlessly trying to curb crimes against women, but for that to happen, public should lend support.

The meeting was also addressed by Chandan Bhattacharjya, president of Sachetan Nagarik Moncha, Bharati Saikia, Mridusmita Sinha, chairperson of Sivasagar Municipal Board and Rashmita Das, secretary of Sivasagar Legal Service Authority.
