"In order to make public places in the city safe for women, the city police's southeast division has launched the social project along with NGO Durga. We have identified nearly eight places under our jurisdiction which women generally do not frequent," tweeted southeast division Deputy Commissioner of Police Isha Pant.

She also reportedly said that they will get more women of different age groups and professions visit the NGO which will also encourage other women to join in.

She added that she wanted to make the city safe and thus will be at the locations for three hours for a fortnight to spread awareness regarding safety.

Former Indian captain Anil Kumble also backed the campaign. He posted a video on TikTok and expressed his support for the campaign.
