Chandigarh, India, May 25, 2020 -- To help women facing the domestic violence during lockdown, the Jalandhar Police Commissionerate has started online counseling helpline for such women through teleconferencing.
Divulging the details on Monday, the Commissioner of Police Gurpreet Singh Bhullar said that due to lockdown the complaints regarding domestic violence amongst women were pouring in.
He said that to redress such complaints and ensure the safety and security of the women the Commissionerate Police has constituted a special panel under Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, D Sudharvizhi.
Bhullar said a sub inspector rank officer Monica Arora would be heading the panel with two assistant sub inspectors Asha Kiran and Suman Bala.
The Commissioner of Police said that apart from three police officers equal number of psychiatrists Dr Jasbir Kaur, Dr Sarabjit Singh and Rajbeer Kaur would be holding the counseling of the complainant.
He said that as due to lockdown it was not possible for the complainant to move easily and pursue the case, so this decision has been taken by the Commissionerate Police.
