MP to check activities of Romeos to ensure women safety

Bhopal, Mar 31 (PTI) In order to ensure safety and security of women, a campaign on the lines of Uttar Pradesh would also be launched in Madhya Pradesh to check activities of ‘Majnoos’ (Romeos).

“We will reform ‘majnoo’ type of persons. They don’t know how to respect… They are not good for the civilised society… A campaign will be launched against Majnoos,” Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said addressing 89th Passing Out Parade at MP Police Academy here.

Police should keep vigil near places like girls hostel to ensure that they (women and girl) won’t face any difficulty, he said.

The Chief Minister said that women are no less than anyone in terms of courage, valour and in their duties and therefore one-third posts in police department are reserved for them.

“Police should create such an atmosphere so that women are able to move around independently without any fear. It should take stern measures against criminal elements,” he added.
