Workshop on crimes against women conducted

WAKRO, Jun 30: The Wakro police station conducted a workshop on crimes against women, with emphasis on protection against domestic violence, at the Beena Ghose Roy Enclave here in Lohit district recently.
During the workshop, which was organised in collaboration with the Wakro Women’s Welfare Association (WWWA), SI Roinem Jugli informed the participants about the laws in force for protection of women. Advising women not to hesitate in reporting any crimes against women, she exhorted them to approach the police as a friend.
“While we may not be able to solve all your problems, we will surely pay attention to your problems and discuss and participate in finding solutions,” she said.
The officer also advised the school girls present to not overindulge in social media, and warned them against dangers in various forms prevalent on social media that pose serious threat to their personal safety.
Jugli also cautioned women against abusing laws that exist to protect women. While she advised the audience not to hesitate to report crimes against women, she cautioned them that if false cases are framed, there are punishments for misleading the law, as well.
Advocate Kameno Dellang spoke on the various acts that fall under the purview of crimes against women, and encouraged women to report crimes to the nearest police station. He also told the gathering that in Arunachal Pradesh, the deputy directors and child development project officers are appointed as protection officers by the government.
Dellang distributed pamphlets on rights of women, women’s rights to protection from domestic violence, and the Arunachal Pradesh Victim Compensation Scheme, 2011, published by the state legal services authority.
DSP Thutan Jomba lauded the police and the AWWA for conducting the programme, and spoke on cyber crime. He requested the public and women to always report crimes on time and approach the police for assistance.
The 150 women participants and Bihem Dellang and Yompi Kri of the WWWA thanked Inspector Thomas Pertin and the district police for the workshop.
Earlier, Thutan Jomba, representing Lohit SP DW Thongon, dedicated the newly functional police station here in the presence of administrative and police officials and others.
