CJP Contribution to Police
Welfare Fund and Complaint to National Commission for Women

 

The Citizens for
Justice and Peace, Mumbai has made a contribution of 
Rs 51,000 
to the
Commissioner of Police Welfare Fund towards the injury suffered by
police women and men on duty during last SaturdayÂ’s (August 11,
2012) demonstration. The CJP while commending the restraint and
maturity shown by top echelons of the Mumbai police and the repeated
assurances that no innocents from any community would be booked,
also appeals to other organisations in the city to come forward with
gestures of solidarity and good faith (we are enclosing a list of
names of police officials injured). As citizens who criticise the
police when things go wrong, it is our duty to also express vocal
appreciation when a situation is controlled effectively.


CJP along with other womenÂ’s activists and organisations have also
in a written complaint to the National Commission for Women urged
that an investigation into allegations of mishandling and
molestation of women police officers be undertaken. Attached is a
copy of the complaint sent to the National Commission for Women
today. Signatories to the complaint include Citizens for Justice
and Peace, Forum Against Oppression of Women, Awaaz-e-Niswaan,
Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan, Sabrang, IIWA (Iqra International
Women’s Alliance), WRAG (Women’s Research and Action Group).
