In its drive to curb crime against women, Delhi Police has roped in religious figures to counsel men found harassing women in public places in the national capital. Under its ‘Operation Shishtachar’ Delhi Police lady personnel in plain clothes will also patrol public places to keep a watch on men harassing women. “We have adopted a two-pronged strategy including legal action and counselling. We have also involved religious figures in the counselling besides experts from the field of psychology and law,” said a senior police officer.
