Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan affirmed that the number of police women in the state will be increased by 10%. The announcement of the Minister comes immediately after the Centre calling for State governments to increase the ratio of women police personnel to 33% to create a congenial atmosphere for women to visit police stations. Women police officials are miniscule in most of the states, comprising just less than 4 percent. The plan to increase the number of women police officials came in the wake of the heinous rape of 23 year old paramedical student in New Delhi.
