Mr. Karyakarte spoke on the action to be taken as soon as crime is committed. He urged women to break their silence as it is the biggest enemy in the way of justice. He also talked about how to take care of self when you are alone, he also described how Police Didi, Mahila Dukshata Samitee, Mohalla committee can help in such difficult situations.
