'Safety of women will not be compromised with': Mamata

Kolkata, Dec 6 (UNI) West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday made
it clear that safety of women will not be compromised with.
Ms Banerjee gave a strong message regarding the safety of women.
Speaking at the annual Sanhati Dibas rally at Mayo Road here, she instructed the
police to file chargesheet in cases of crimes against women within 10 days.
The chief minister raised question about the incident in Unnao where a rape victim
was burned by miscreants.
She said, “Some incidents happen, which we do not support. Laws have to be
strengthened. After coming to power, we filed the chargesheet in Dinajpur case
within 10 days.”
“We do not tolerate any crimes against women. The incidents at Hyderabad and
Unnao have shaken me. Everyone knew about the Unnao case, yet attempts were
made to burn the victim,” Ms Banerjee said.
The chief minister gave a strong message that the state administration will take
strict action in case of complaints of police inaction in such cases.
“Treat this as an emergency. We will take action against those who don’t,” she
Ms Banerjee also iterated that no one can take law into their own hands.
“Law should take its course. Police, administration and judiciary will carry out
their duties,” Ms Banerjee added.
