Ranchi: Following the footsteps of the Anti Romeo squad initiative Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand has launched its own anti-Romeo squads, with police taking action on young men found hanging around schools and colleges without any reason.
The Jharkhand Police carried out a unique drive yesterday around women-only schools and colleges, rounded up some young men and also slapped them.
SSP Ranchi, Kuldeep Dwivedi talking to media stated: “The drive has been launched to ensure safety of the girls. Boys will not be harassed. The move is that girls are not harassed.”
