Nagpur Cop Safely Drops 19-Year Old Stranded Woman Home, Twitterati React

While the recent Hyderabad rape case has shaken the nation and women’s safety in this country is being questioned, a Twitter post has become viral for a good reason. Netizens are praising police personnel in Nagpur who safely transported a 19-year-old woman to her home. 

The police mentioned in the tweet that the young woman was identified as Manisha, who was stranded at a railway station after midnight and was not able to get in touch with her family.

Recently an initiative, “Night Drop” was announced by the city’s police to drop women home safely if they are traveling alone at night. Under this initiative, police will escort women home between 9 pm to 5 am. The transportation assistance provided to Manisha was a part of this initiative.

The step was taken by the Nagpur Police soon after the rape and murder of a 27-year-old vet in Hyderabad. Also, a similar initiative has been started by the Punjab Police in Ludhiana and Chandigarh. Some reports have also mentioned that in March this year, on the occasion of Women’s Day a similar initiative was taken by Ahmedabad Police to arrange a police vehicle to any woman stranded without transportation late in the night. 

The official handle of the Nagpur City Police said, 19 yr old Manisha was safely escorted by us till her home last night at 2 am. from the Railway Station. She tried contacting her parents on phone, but couldn’t connect. She then dialed 1091, We helped her reach Home safely.

The tweet by the Nagpur Police garnered a lot of attention online, with many lauding the police. Many also tagged the police force in their own city requesting similar facilities. But there were also people who questioned how the situation has deteriorated to such an extent that women need to be escorted by the police.

Nagpur City Police’s post is winning everyone’s hearts.

Do you think this “Night Drop” initiative should be replicated in every Indian city?
