On the day Muslim women were carrying out a march against Triple Talaq, Mumbai Police announced on Twitter that they are first in the country to have eight women officers as police station in-charge.
On Saturday, as thousands of women marched on to Mumbai’s Azad Maidan, women police force was more than visible. From all the women DCPs and lower rung staff present on ground zero it was a job well done. More so because there were reports that men could be part of the event wearing veil.
These eight women have been appointed as senior inspectors which is the highest post at police station level in the commissionerate.
