Hyderabad police has announced formation of Bharosa, a single point support centre to women and children, who become victims in sexual assaults and violence.
Announcing this on Tuesday coinciding with the International Women’s Day, Hyderabad Police Commissioner M. Mahender Reddy said Bharosa-Support Centre was registered as a non-profit society under Societies Registration Act. An executive body, along with an advisory board comprising medical, legal, counselling and rehabilitation expertise, would help victims secure justice.
The idea of Bharosa was conceived after police top brass realised that women and children falling prey to violence and abuse were facing hurdles to get the accused punished. Victims had to undergo cumbersome process moving around police stations and hospitals increasing their distress instead of providing relief.
“There is no immediate professional psychological or legal counselling for them. Bharosa will provide a multi-pronged approach to meet all such needs,” he said.
He formally launched the website of Bharosa. It will operate from nearly 7,000 square feet office being set up on the ground floor of HACA Bhavan in Saifabad.
Women facing physical, sexual, emotional, psychological and economic abuse, irrespective of age, class, caste, education status, marital status, race and culture will be provided with support and guidance for solutions.
