The Police Commssionerate, in collaboration with Lions Club, has launched a 3-week martial arts training program called “Self-defence training module for women” to empower women with unarmed combat skills so as to defend and protect themselves from perpetrators of crime.
In the first phase, two batches of 30 women each, comprising school and college students, will receive training at the CP headquarters. In the coming days, the ambit would be widened to include working women as well as housewives.
The Commissionerate Police has set up two special centres, Madhyam, in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack to deal with women-related issues.
