Karnataka may get special courts to deal exclusively with crime against women.

Karnataka may get special courts to deal exclusively with crime against women. State Home Minister K J George said Thursday the government was considering a proposal to set up at least 10 fast-track courts to ensure speedy trials and disposal of cases involving crime against women. He was speaking at the inauguration of a two-day national conference on women’s safety and security in Bangalore.

Web portal for women to lodge complaints was launched at the event.

George said state police were ready to extend all cooperation for safety of women.

Governor H R Bhardwaj,however,claimed a “collapse in the police force”. He alleged that the government was interfering in the work of honest police officers and transferring them. Crimes against women could also be prevented by recruiting more women police,Bhardwaj said,adding: “Laws have to be made spontaneously with the trend of crimes against women. Investigations and trials should be completed within a short span.”
