New Delhi: To ensure safety of women passengers in metro, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has decided to deploy ‘All Women Internal Combat Group’.
The decision was taken after a string of complaints registered at Metro police stations about eve-teasing, ogling from various female commuters.
The team deployed by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), has been given special training to fight multiple opponents in Metro trains, using Pekiti-Tirsia Kali (style specific to Filipino Martial Arts). They have been given special training to fight miscreants bare-handed.
The Delhi Metro has been instrumental in ushering in a new era in the sphere of mass urban transportation in India. The modern metro system revolutionized the mass transportation scenario not only in the National Capital Region but the entire country.
Having constructed a massive network of 213 Km with 160 stations in record time, the DMRC today stands out as a shining example of how a mammoth technically complex infrastructure project can be completed before time and within budgeted cost by a Government agency.
