New Delhi, January 01, 2015 (Online News India): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh launched the women’s safety mobile application ‘Himmat’ of the Delhi Police at a function here today. Lauding the Delhi Police for launching the emergency call application for women in distress, Rajnath Singh said the force has been training women of all ages in self defence techniques and so far over 15,000 women have been imparted training. He said such self defence training inculcates a sense of self confidence in women.

The Union Home Minister said the Indian people have been traditionally more sensitive to women’s safety issues as women have been worshiped and respected through ancient times in our society.

Rajnath Singh said that the representation of women in the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) will rise significantly in the next few years. He said the Ministry of Home Affairs has targeted that women’s representation in the CAPFs will go up from the lowly 1.5 percent to five percent in the next two to three years. The Union Home Minister said MHA has also sent an advisory to all State Governments to provide 33 percent representation to women in the State Police Forces.

On the occasion Rajnath Singh unveiled an Advertisement of the Delhi Police on the launch of Helpline No.1064 and What’sApp number where complaints against harassment can be registered with photos and videos. He said, Delhi being the National Capital, the Delhi Police has added responsibility to turn itself into a model police force and set an example in model policing.
