New Delhi: The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) Chief Swati Maliwal on Monday met the Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi and demanded appointment of a "sensible" ladyofficer at Kamla Market police station to bolster security at GB Road, the largest red-light area in the national capital.

"The DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal on Monday met the Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi and discussed issues related to women's safety in the city," a DCW official said.

"Maliwal demanded appointment of a sensible lady police officer at Kamla Market police to bolster security at GB Road red-light area here to tackle crimes and keep a check on the cases of trafficking," the official said.

Maliwal had recently approached police along with a physically-handicapped sex worker seeking registration of a case against the family members of the woman's live-in partner, who allegedly have confined him in their house as they were opposed to the relationship.

According to the official, Maliwal also demanded that the vacant police posts should be filled up to strengthen security cover across Delhi.

"She also sought to know the status of the CCTV cameras in the city how many are working and where are they installed. Secretary has assured to revert back on the query in the next meeting," the official said.
