These Refugee Women From Myanmar Are Now Crime-Fighters In Delhi!

It is not without reason that Delhi is called the rape capital of the country. It reports the highest incidents of violence and sexual assaults against women. In addition to that, it hosts a large population of refugees and immigrants from neighbouring countries, who flee persecution in their own nations and hope to build a better life here. Unfortunately, many times they become even easier targets for abuse. In this context, we present to you the laudable efforts of the Crime Against Women Cell of the Delhi Police for imparting self-defence training to refugee women.
