New Delhi: The Delhi Government will set up new courts and appoint new judges to ensure that cases of crime against women are disposed of within six months besides setting up special security cells for their protection.  

In his address to the Delhi Assembly, Lt Governor Najeeb Jung said, “A matter of deep concern is the security of women and girls. That 50 per cent of the population should be intimidated enough to avoid public spaces is a shame.”

“Special security cells shall be set up to ensure that women and girls are not harassed. New courts shall be set up and new judges appointed so as to ensure that all cases involving harassment of women or girls are disposed of in three months.

“Similarly, such number of courts shall be set up and judges appointed so that all other cases are disposed of in six months,” he said.

Setting up of Special Security Cells was promised by AAP during their campaign for the Assembly polls.
