Yesterday we had one more Nirbhaya. Why are the authorities so helpless and clueless? more  
Safety dial numbers if used can help in many Circumstances. Govt and Media shall every week NOTIFY PUBLIC AND , all Establishments whether Private, Corporate , Govt , PSU , NGO . more  
Training in use of Small arms ( pistols,revolvers ) must be provided at shooting schools to all eligible mentally fit women and certificate of fitness should be given when they pass.This is useful when they apply for procurement of small arms for personal use.
A psychiatric exam to be done to all who apply for the licence for possession of small arms.
Provision of sale of small arms to these eligible women who feel the threat at cost price from govt ordinance depot .
This will provide a confident atmosphere in the society to live fearlessly along with training in self defence courses,physical fitness, pepper spray ,mobile apps and then induction of SHE teams in police as done in Hyderabad will go a long way in bringing stability it may bring down violence .The info that certain women may be armed sends a signal to the would be criminals from desisting doing it. more  
First of all let woman change their mentality that every woman is to be honoured as an individual and they should not support their son or husband for their wrong doing.

Similarly, society, i.e.; each man and woman, should respect it. You can not take revenge by harassing a woman.

People should come out from the clutches of so called social institutes, which is not progressive.

Police should also change their mentality and help victim first by providing medical assistance and necessary legal assistance, particularly to the weaker society of the society.

Judiciary, should be strict with lawyer, who are taking undue advantages of british law.

In the present age of advanced technology, people can't remain absconding for a long and culprit police or lawyer should be prosecuted accordingly to set example in society.

The case should be dealt in fast track. more  
Besides punishing guilty heavily should we not educate upcoming children about decency, attitude, discipline, civic sense which will make them better citizens and future will have such less problems ? more  
Basic steps to be taught for not only women but in general for minors travelling alone etc on how to defend/protect themselves in event of any crisis or when alone. Emergency numbers and rest follow later. It would be better if self defence tactics are made public then it would create awareness amongst the common man. This could also deter any offender on thinking twice to commit a crime. Thanks Srikanth more
