Rawalpindi Police Have Introduced Harassment Reporting Unit, 'HRU'
Rawalpindi police have introduced a separate 'Harassment Reporting Unit' (HRU) to assist and support women to file their harassment complaints without disclosing their names or identities. The purpose of HRU is to help women who suffer harassment at their workplaces, homes, markets, public transport, or anyplace.
The sufferers will now be capable to take action against the person who harasses them just by sitting in their homes.
A police officer told while giving an interview to a local media source that the unit owns the ‘latest mobile phone technology’ that will allow the victims to inform any incident of harassment either by calls or through WhatsApp. It will help women who are reluctant to appear before a male investigating officer to file a case. This unit will encourage women to report cases.
