The Punjab and Haryana High Court lawyer HC Arora, on Wednesday, has sent legal notices to the UT Administration and the states of Punjab and Haryana to implement the directions issued by the Supreme Court of India related to eve-teasing.
The apex court, vide its judgement dated November 30 this year, had directed all the state governments and Union Territories to depute plain clothed female police officers in the precincts of bus stands and stops, railway stations, metro stations, cinema theatres, shopping malls, parks, beaches, public service vehicles, places of worship etc. so as to monitor and supervise incidents of eve-teasing.
It was further directed by the apex court to install CCTV in strategic positions which itself would be a deterrent and if detected, the offender could be caught and to establish a women's helpline in various cities and towns, so as to curb eve-teasing within three months.
