Amitesh Kumar, the commissioner of police in Nagpur, has taken serious note of assaults on female customers in the Sonegaon Police Station-administered Dabo Club and Kitchen. In many hotels and restaurants in the city, no precautions are taken to safeguard the safety of women.
Every hotel should set up plans for this. The police commissioner has mandated that CCTV cameras be placed and that the footage from those cameras be retained for at least 15 days. On Tuesday, instructions were given in this regard.
In the city, a lot of restaurants and hotels stay open till 10:00 p.m. Without permission, events like parties and other programmes are planned. Even after 10 p.m., the DJ and sound system are still playing. The local police station does little in spite of concerns from the public. This frequently results in arguments.
The Nagpur City Police have now decided to take strong action in light of the aforementioned facts.
