HYDERABAD: To help the women conductors defend from day-to-day challenges, Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) has organised karate training classes for them.

At a two-day training programme in the art of self-defence, 14 women employees of the corporation from various zones in Hyderabad were taught how to thwart sudden attacks and stalking. Officials of the corporation said that the classes will help the women deal with such situations whether on the job or off the job.
