An anti eve-teasing squad named Nirbhaya Pathak was launched by citizen's group Vande Mataram Sanghatana and a city-based NGO Sarhad on Friday. The squads will consist of school and college students, who will form a link between local police chowkies and students for reporting crime against girl students. The squad was launched in the presence of additional director general (Prisons) Meeran Borwankar in a function at SM Joshi Hall. Retired senior police inspector Dattatray Temghare is the coordinator of the squad.
Borwankar said, "Instead of pointing fingers at others, we have to come forward and collaborate."
She also said that number of young women in local Mahila Dakshata Sameeti (Women Vigilance Committees) was less and must be increased. Sarjad's Sanjay Nahar said, "This squad will have five boys and five girls from each of the schools. Their leader will be in touch with the local police chowky. The squad members' name and contact numbers will be displayed on boards in educational institutes. They will keep a watch on crime against the students, especially girls in and around colleges."
