The IGP enjoins parents and guardians to keep a close watch on their children and wards and report any incidents of abuse against women and children. He expresses his displeasure with the prevailing culture of silence in concealing crimes against women and children and calls for improved collaboration with the Police, assuring that the Force is well repositioned to protect women and children and confront violent crimes in the country.
