Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde has called a meet of all states chief secretaries and DGPs on January 4 in the capital. The government has taken the initiative to discuss crime against women in all the state and to review the law and order situation after the Delhi gangrape fallout.
The Home Minister said the Centre is convening a meeting of Chief Secretaries and Directors General of Police of all states on January four to take stock of the crime against women, particularly rape.
"The January four meeting will discuss the overall scenario of crime against women, particularly rape, and how to check them. We will also discuss how to fast-track the rape cases," he said.
Shinde said women belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes often become victims of sexual violence and the government would look into their grievances.
"SCs and STs live in remote areas so such crimes do not come out in the public. But we are sincere provide protection to these under privileged sections of the society," he said.
