Set up Rape Crisis Centres and specialised Sexual Assault Treatment Units in Delhi

This petition had 0 supporters


The Ministry of Home Affairs on September 4, 2009 sent a detailed advisory to the States and Union Territories carrying a set of instructions to deal with cases of rape including setting up of Rape Crisis Centres (RCCs) and specialised Sexual Assault Treatment Units (SATUs).

The Health department of the State Govts., should set up ‘Rape Crisis Centres’ (RCCs) and specialized ‘Sexual Assault Treatment Units’ (SATUs), at appropriate
places.

A recent media article in a leading daily indicated how these centers haven't been set up in many states.

Delhi is not an exception. Though the national capital set up a few, almost all of them are dysfunctional.  This negligence is not acceptable. 

I am asking the Chief Minister of Delhi, Sheila Dikshit, to immediately set up and revamp the RCCs and SATUs in Delhi
