Maharashtra legislative council's deputy chairperson Neelam Gorhe has stressed the need for the rehabilitation of child labourers and oppressed women
Maharashtra Legislative Council's deputy chairperson Neelam Gorhe has stressed the need for the rehabilitation of child labourers and oppressed women, PTI reported.
Speaking at an event in the Vasai area of Palghar district, Gorhe also said the responsibility for the implementation of social legislation rests with social organisations. She said the problems of the society can be solved by understanding the global, universal and constitutional frameworks.
The mentality of society is to underestimate women, hence they lack courage, Gorhe said, adding that courage comes from interacting with people.
She underlined the need for the rehabilitation of child labourers and oppressed women which, she said, is a big challenge faced by the government.
Although the administration helps from time to time, there is also pressure on them at times. It takes time for them to get justice, she added.
After alert from Interpol about 'suicide' search online, Mumbai police save man from ending life
Meanwhile, the Mumbai police traced a 28-year-old man and saved him from ending his life following an alert from Interpol that he was searching for the 'best way to commit suicide' on Google.
The man, who hails from Rajasthan, was rescued on Tuesday from suburban Malvani after the police traced his location on the basis of his mobile number shared by Interpol, he said.
The International Criminal Police Organization, commonly known as Interpol, is an international organisation that facilitates worldwide police cooperation and crime control.
"The rescue operation was conducted by Unit-11 of the Mumbai police's crime branch based on the information given by the Interpol on Tuesday afternoon," the police official said.
"The victim, a resident of Malvani in Malad West is a native of Rajasthan. During the probe, the police found that he was under pressure as he was not able to secure the release of his mother from jail in Mumbai since her arrest in a criminal case two years ago," he said.
The man earlier stayed in the Mira Road locality (in the neighbouring Thane district) with his relatives before shifting to Malvani, a western suburb, he said.
"He has been jobless for the last six months. Since he was not able to secure the release of his mother from jail, he was under depression. As the thoughts of ending life came to his mind, he started an online search to find ways to commit suicide," the official said.
He searched 'Suicide best way' on Google several times, which caught the attention of Interpol officials, who sent an email about it to the Mumbai police along with his mobile phone number, he said.
On the basis of that information, the crime branch found that the user of the mobile phone was in Malvani, he added.
"Accordingly, the police rushed to the place. The victim was then taken into custody and counselled," he said.
He was asked to go to his relatives' place in the city after being counselled by professional counsellors, the police official said. (Agencies)
