Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday launched India's first integrated mobile application for women safety called ‘Himmat', in the presence of Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi and Delhi's Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung.

“The ‘Himmat' application will strengthen women safety. Whosoever will download this smart phone-based application can alert the police in the hour of need by either shaking the phone or pressing the power button twice,” said Bassi.

 “It is directly linked to the Police Control Room and they will get an indication immediately. After that the location can be traced and will be updated every ten seconds,” he added.

 Hoping that maximum number of women will download this application, Bassi said, “This is India's first official integrated application for women safety.” 

The app has been designed keeping in mind the safety of women. — ANI
