Diktat to fight teasing

The Ranchi district administration today ordered removal of all food carts, cigarette shops etc from the vicinity of educational institutions in the capital with immediate effect.

Administration officials maintained that these were the places that attracted unnecessary gatherings, which to a large extent was responsible for problems such as eve-teasing and other untoward activities.

Ranchi subdivisional magistrate A. Kumar on Tuesday chaired a meeting with the heads of colleges and other educational institutions to take stock of preparations in place to curb problems such as eve-teasing.

The SDO ordered each and every institution to have a special counselling committee in place at the earliest to sensitise students from time to time. This apart, he also directed police to keep a tab on areas such as Hariom Tower, BIT Extension (Lalpur), Gossner College, Purulia Road, GEL Church Complex and Marwari College, among other places frequented by students, to prevent trouble.

“Special orders were also given to remove sleazy posters from city walls, specially from near educational institutions. All the institutions have been asked to display the eve teasing cell no (9431700003) along with numbers of concerned officers like SP, senior SP, police station in-charge etc on their campus,” said Kumar through a press note.

This apart, all institutions were asked to conduct regular awareness sessions, increase extra-curricular activities to keep students busy.

“Educational institutions were also asked to completely ban mobile phones on campus,” read the press note.

During earlier meetings, deputy commissioner Vinay Kumar Choubey ordered installation of close circuit cameras and deputation of women constables for easy identification of miscreants and assistance of girls and women on the road.

But things are yet to move in that direction.
