Imphal, Aug 8: Union Ministry of Women and Child Development have directed the state government to make sure for reservation of 33% post in the police force for women. The Ministry justifies the reservation policy as a means to protect women at the backdrop of increasing offences against women including domestic and sexual violence, trafficking, harassment at workplace etc.
“The presence of women police officers and staffs will enable women, especially in villages, to report offences and seek redressal of their grievances,” the ministry directive stated.
Taking the matter seriously, the State Home Department had written a letter to the Director General of Police, Manipur to take necessary action for complying the Ministry’s directives.
