Ludhiana, July 23
Now, the Ludhiana police will support rape victims to build their bright future and help them to fulfil their dreams. This is a first-of-its-kind initiative of the police to help the rape victims and make them feel safe.
The brainchild of ADCP Rupinder Kaur Sra Zone 4, the project ‘Sawera’ (a new day, a new beginning) was launched by Police Commissioner Rakesh Agrawal along with members of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
“At ground level, whenever I have come across rape victims, I have felt helpless and deeply saddened by the state of such women. I developed this deep urge to help them and create a better life for them. Whenever we come across such cases, our normal course of action is to lodge an FIR and help them take legal course but that in itself is not enough. Just to keep waiting for justice to happen and not be able to do anything till then and not take charge of your life to make it better is not the solution,” the ADCP said.
Sra said she had been dreaming to launch the project to help the rape victims for long and finally her dream came true with its launch.
With project Sawera, she hopes to help these victims as a society, as a moral obligation and not just as a course of duty. She intends to empower victims by providing them employment. On our call, the CII is already committed to help, by providing them employment, financial aid, education to victims and children of victims, to counsel and provide them with emotional support, the ADCP added.
“Besides, we are also in the process of registering these victims with the help of a mobile app for a faster reach out. So far, we are starting the project from Police Zone 4 and all rape victims fall under this zone will be helped in all way,” reveals Sra.
The ADCP said other individuals helping in the project were Amit Juneja, a young entrepreneur, joint MD of Vidhata Group, Ashpreet Singh Sahni, a proactive individual, director of Sehaj Solutions and also the current chairman of the CII, Ludhiana, Ashwin Nagpal, MD of HRBL Group and also current vice-chairman of the CII, Dr Mehak Bansal, senior consultant, and paediatric critical care specialist in CLIO mother and child institute, Dr Venus Bansal, senior consultant, and Dr Rashi, senior psychologist.
