Hyderabad: The Rachakonda SHE teams booked 40 cases (13 FIRs, 19 petty cases, and eight counseling cases) against eve-teasers in the last four weeks and apprehended 44 eve-teasers, including 19 minors.

The eve-teasers and their families were given counseling by professional counselors from the Bhumika Women's Collective (NGO). Children in conflict with the law were counseled by professional psychiatrist Dr. Vasavi.

The Bhongir, Chotuppal, Malkajgiri, and other SHE teams have conducted several decoy operations and arrested many. The SHE teams also conducted decoy operations in Metro trains and caught nine persons who intruded into the ladies' compartment. They were fined by the Metro station master.

In the last eight weeks, 44 eve-teasers were caught by the Rachakonda SHE teams during decoy operations and through WhatsApp/SMUC complaints from different areas of Rachakonda. They were harassing women on Metro trains and at junctions, bus stops, workplaces, and colleges.

Preventing child marriages

In the last month, the Rachakonda SHE teams stopped three child marriages, while the Choutuppal, Ibrahimpatnam, and Vanasthalipuram SHE teams stopped one each. As of 18 June, 148 child marriages were stopped by the Rachakonda SHE teams.

They also rescued 148 minor girls from child marriages.

The Rachakonda commissioner of police, Mahesh M. Bhagwat, appreciated the good work done by the SHE teams and appealed to all women and girls from Rachakonda to approach the SHE teams through Rachakonda WhatsApp control number 9490617111 or dial 100 when they face eve-teasing or sexual harassmen
