Bhopal: Demanding capital punishment for the rapists, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday announced that a campaign, similar to that of anti-Romeo squads in Uttar Pradesh, will be launched in Madhya Pradesh, too.

Chouhan announced the move while addressing the 89th passing out parade of Sub-Inspectors at MP Police Academy in the State capital.

The chief minister, who in the past has demanded death penalty for the rapists, said that the government would introduce a bill regarding this in the upcoming monsoon session of assembly.

He called for an environment where women do not feel apprehensive going out even after midnight. He asked the newly-inducted officers to take an oath not to err in keeping the dignity of women intact.

He urged the young officers to dismantle the network of mining mafia, liquor mafia, looters, and dacoits.

Chouhan heaped praises on MP Police for arresting terrorists accused of triggering blasts in Bhopal-Ujjain passenger train within three hours of the incident. “The credit for making MP an island of peace goes to the police,” he said.

Chouhan urged newly-inducted officers to distance themselves from middlemen and discharge duties with integrity.
