New Delhi: After the Disha Act was promulgated in the state of Andhra Pradesh, the state has now set up Disha police stations in all the districts across the state in a bid to address issues of women’s safety.
The police stations would soon be inaugurated by the state chief minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy.
The Disha Act was implemented by the state government in the wake of the brutal gang rape and murder of a 27-year-old veterinarian on the outskirts of Hyderabad last year.
Now, the chief minister has ordered to set up the Disha police stations to ensure stringent punishment in case of crimes against women. These police stations are supposed to expedite investigation into such cases.
