Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy on Saturday inaugurated a Disha police station for women, perhaps the first such police station in the country, named after the Hyderabad-based veterinary doctor Disha who was brutally raped and murdered, at Rajahmundry.
The CM was accompanied by Home Minister Mekathoti Sucharita, the State Women's Commission chairperson Vasireddy Padma, Minister Taneti Vanitha and MLA R K Roja.
DGP Gautam Sawang, and special officers of the Disha Act Deepika Patil and Kritika Shukla, also accompanied the CM.
The AP government has decided to establish 18 Disha police stations across AP. A total of 52 police personnel headed by a DSP will manage each of the 18 police stations.
