To strengthen the security of women and facing flak over the gangrape and murder of a 19-year-old Dalit woman in Hathras, the state home department has decided to set up a data analytics centre as part of the Women Power Line 1090.
The Women Power Line 1090 is a 24×7 contact centre in Lucknow that women can call to register complaints against eve-teasing.
At the centre, to be established under the ‘safe city’ project, data would be collected and analysed to identify areas more prone to crime against women, officials said.
“The data, collected from different sources, would be analysed to identify the areas where the women were harassed. The areas from where maximum cases are reported would be marked as hot spots. The district police and anti-Romeo squads would be activated to check crime against women,” Additional chief secretary, home, Awanish Kumar Awasthi said.
