Girls to be trained to deal with one-sided lovers in Vadodara
In Vadodara, women can now learn how to fend off such men with tact, without putting their lives in danger
Breakups are not just causing emotional breakdowns for love birds but resulting in brutal murders of women by their spurned lovers.
But, in Vadodara, women can now learn how to fend off such men with tact, without putting their lives in danger.
Following the recent murder of 19-year-old Trusha Solanki by a jilted lover, Vadodara cops have decided to train women and girls handle a persuasive boyfriend, who is not taking no for an answer.
"Women sometimes want to end the relationship but the paramour either stalks her or resorts to emotional blackmailing. And women have no idea about how to deal with the situation. The police have decided to offer help to such women and counsel them in handling breakups," said Shamsher Singh, city police commissioner.
If a troubled girl calls up the police, she will be counselled about how to handle the situation if the man seems violent or angry. "If the man is persuasive, the girl often goes to meet him alone even after breaking up.
Such situations often lead to violence and put women at risk of serious injury or even death. Our team will give them tips to avoid any situation that puts them in danger," a police official said.
Trusha went to meet Kalpesh at an isolated spot without informing anyone but she had no inkling of the fact that he would murder her. In April 2019, 25-year-old Prachi Maurya was murdered by her former boyfriend Waseem Malek in the dead of the night on Old Padra Road. He stalked Prachi and accosted her at an isolated spot where she was hanging out with a friend.
