Delhi Government launches 'women helpline no. 167'
New Delhi: In an attempt to beef up women's security in the capital, Delhi government has started Chief Minister helpline number (167) for the women in distress. Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit requested the Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal to allot the three digit number for helping the women who are in trouble.

Mobile value added service provider CanvasM has developed a special application called 'Fight Back'. The application tracks a user's location and sends SOS messages to selected contacts while having emergency. The user just have to push of a button on sensing danger and the help asking messages will automatically send to their family and friends.

The action has been taken following the brutal gangrape of a 23-year-old medical student in a moving bus in Delhi. The victim girl is still battling for life in Safdarjung Hospital. The whole nation has come on the roads to protest the brutal attack asking for quick sentences for the accused.

The protest had gone violent on Sunday and Police had to lathicharge the protesters including women. They also fired water cannons and tear gas shells to give a full stop to the increasing outrage in the youth. During the attacks from both sides more than 140 protesters were injured while one policeman was critical.

However, the government has closed all routes to the India Gate on Monday. But a large number of protesters moved to the Jantar Mantar to continue their protest against the brutal gangrape.
