On the occasion of World Children's Day on Friday, a police station in Kanpur made a young girl station in-charge for a day.
Following this, she said, "It was very engrossing. I learnt a lot about how police stations work."
As per a police officer, the aim was to put confidence in them (girls) and to sensitise them for their rights and legal procedure.
Earlier in the year 2019, the Federation of apartment owners’ association (AOA) wrote to Uttar Pradesh DGP to invest in building a friendly relationship between police and women citizen, as many crimes go unreported due to the fear they have in reporting crime to the police.
The federation had also suggested the police to conduct a quiz and debate programmes in schools and later appoint the winner as in-charge of a police station for a day.
