Police will help women within 7 mins of call: Patil

The government is planning steps to make the state safer for women.

"A new programme will necessitate police to respond within seven minutes to calls made by women on helpline number 103," home minister R R Patil told a function in sub-urban Mumbai.

The state government has been contemplating a slew of measures to ensure safety of women after the heinous Delhi gangrape.

Patil said stern action would be taken against police harassing women who approach them to register complaints.
