Many student leaders of Panjab University attended the session in order to make suggestions to the UT police so that it could conduct an effective campaign against those outraging the modesty of women.

According to the officials who attended the meeting, it was observed that student organizations can play a great role in making the city safe for girls and free from nuisance creators.

Prabhpreet Singh, a student of the evening studies department, who attended the meeting said, "We have been assured that we will have fast track courts and other provisions for dealing with the cases like the one which happened in Delhi swiftly. Even we have assured the SSP that he has the full support of the student organizations in panjab University in measures he will take against such crimes".

The students have decided to make groups who will be keeping in touch with the police. Also, these groups will address the problems of students pertaining to the issue.

Any girl who feels uncomfortable in approaching the police can then approach these group members and make the complaint to them instead and these group members will represent the police.

SOPU president Manoj Lubana said, "SSP had asked for our suggestions to stop the menace and crime against women. We assured him that as students' outfits, we will try our level best to sensitize students studying in Panjab University and colleges".

He also added that they will be inviting the SSP for lectures and interactions.

The SSP suggested to the student leaders that they initiate an awareness campaign among the students about the growing problem in which a woman is troubled after all the colleges re-open after the winter vacations.
