Rohtak: To prevent misuse of law in the name of crime against women, the Haryana State Commission for Women (HSCW) has asked the Superintendents of Police (SPs) of all the districts to book case against those girls and women whose complaints are found false during investigation. Moreover, the girls and women will also have to face police action if they backtrack from their allegations leveled against accused in their complaints as they have no right to misuse the laws to serve their vested interests.
Suman Dahiya, vice-chairperson of the women’s commission, stated this while interacting with media persons in Jhajjar after obtaining information about the police action in the crime against women from Jhajjar SP Rajesh Duggal. “Though the women’s commission has been set up for security of women but it is not against the men. Our work is to ensure the justice to those who are at the receiving end. We have, during investigation, found several false cases lodged by the girls, hence, the SPs have been asked to take action against such girls under section 182 of the CrPC to check the misuse of law,” said Suman.
She informed a women helpline number 1091 had been launched by Haryana Police at every district headquarter to provide immediate succor to the women victim. The service was closely being monitored by the women commission, she added. “We have asked the SPs to send the commission weekly reports about complaints lodged on the helpline number so that further action could be taken as per nature of the complaints,” said Suman. Later, she visited a polytechnic institute in Jhajjar to investigate a complaint wherein a woman employee lodged a complaint against the institute’s principal for torturing her mentally.
