In the wake of recent acid attack on a woman doctor in Delhi, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said that the Centre was working on online monitoring of sale of acid to prevent such incidents.
“An online monitoring of sale of acid would be done to put an effective check over such incidents,” he said while addressing a function at Mahila College here. He said the system would be first launched in Delhi and asserted that safety of women was among top priorities of the Centre. “Girl students should be trained in self defence,” he added. On boosting numbers of women in security forces, Singh said, “The MHA has sent an advisory to all CMs to give 33 per cent representation to women in security forces.”
Rajnath calls for anti-conversion law
Home Minister Rajnath Singh supported the demand for an anti-conversion law and appealed to all parties to think over it “seriously”. “I think to check conversion, an anti-conversion law has to be framed,” he said. (With PTI inputs)
