Drop in Eve-teasing in Hyderabad, Thanks to SHE Teams

In the past one year the Cyberabad SHE teams have made it loud and clear that they are not going to spare anyone who commits crime against women and, in this short span, have been able to book 825 persons, of whom 118 are minors, for sexually harassing women at public places.

The teams completed exactly one year on Sunday and, in order to commemorate the first anniversary of SHE Teams, Nizamabad MP K.Kavitha, along with film actress Jayasudha and Cyberabad police commissioner CV Anand, flagged off ‘She Walkathon’ a 1-km-long walk organised to create awareness on women’s safety.

Kavitha said, “From the day Telangana was formed, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had only one dream: to turn this state into a ‘Bangaru Telangana’. We cannot create one if our girls are insecure and even if we try to, it won’t have any value. That’s the reason why we have started so many initiatives for the safety of women. For the first time in India, SHE Teams were formed in our state and today, after one year, we are proud to say that because of them a sense of security has come to prevail in the state.”

Referring to a statement made by Anand that most of his batchmates and senior officers wanted to send their daughters to Hyderabad, she said, “When our commissioner says that many bureaucrats want to send their daughters to our city for work, it is a matter of pride for us.” As part of the celebrations, a short film featuring Jayasudha was screened to spread awareness about women’s safety.

Also, a skit and simple self-defence techniques were demonstrated. “I was overwhelmed by seeing the short film.

I never thought that the film would convey the message in such a powerful way. Doing in movies is one thing and acting in awareness movies is another. Being a woman I know all of us women suffered this problem at some point of time,” Jayasudha said.
