Senior inspector Manohar Joshi of Deccan Gymkhana police station said, "We have conducted training sessions for school girls, boys and college students about these issues and precautions that need to be taken to avoid such incidences."
Pol said police are also in touch with NGOs and social workers to help them in tackling the issues about crime against women. "We must understand we can look at cases of rapes in isolation. Incidences of eve teasing, molestation, even chain snatching and those of domestic violence are all result of the same mentality. The cases of domestic violence also need to be looked at with a different perspective. We are taking help of social workers and counsellors at the grievance redressal cell to facilitate better interpersonal communication to avoid these cases."
