HYDERABAD: Commissioner of Police of Hyderabad Anjani Kumar reviewed Vikalpa Crisis counselling centre on Monday. The Centre rehabilitates women who are forced into sex work.

Lauding the collective efforts of Prajwala, the NGO that offers support for the Centre, and the police, Anjani Kumar informed that over 60 victims had received rehabilitation support in the last six to seven months. “Soon, the other zones will also follow the same and ensure that we can keep a tab on the crime cases,” he said appreciating B Sumathi, DCP, North Zone.
