NEW DELHI: Delhi Police has deployed its women staffers on scooters to ensure the safety and security of women in Delhi University’s South Campus during the admission season.

“During the admission season, we generally deploy policemen. This year, we have beefed up security arrangements,” the DCP said.
The DCP said that a good number of women candidates come from outside Delhi to take admission in the university and appropriate arrangements have been made to ensure their safety.
