The State police have introduced a new device called ‘RAKSHITA APPS’ to help women in distress/trouble/danger, according to DGP Prasada Rao.

The police chief who visited Mahabubnagar and Kurnool districts on Saturday on an foundation laying/ inauguration spree, told newsmen that any woman in distress/trouble/danger could just dial 119 and seek help from police.

The call would be passed on to the police station/ set-up through the ‘RAKSHITA APPS’ so that the police could rush to the trouble spot and rescue the woman. The DGP said that due to better awareness among the women now about the Nirbhaya Act more cases under the Act were being registered in the State.

Referring to the increasing number of highway accidents in the two districts, the DGP said that that most of these accidents were occurring due to over-speeding and rash driving. He said that to curb the accidents, speed-recording gauges would be installed at the tollgates to check the speed of the vehicles between one tollgate and another.

Answering newsmen’s questions on the Palem bus blaze incident, Prasada Rao said that there was only a single driver in the ill-fated bus on that day. He also ruled out any possibility of sabotage in the blaze.
