"We will ask tutorials not to hold classes for girls after 8 pm and make sure they return home between 8 and 9 pm," said the minister.
Joshi also said that principals of government schools would be encouraged to raise awareness among students about women safety and ask them to move around in groups and also report the matter to teachers or parents if they spot suspicious elements.
