To aid investigation, work on setting up of forensic labs with basic infrastructure should also be expedited, he told the officials. Disha police stations should also be set up in each of the 25 Lok Sabha constituencies. There should be a monthly review on Disha police stations.

The other cases registered were domestic violence (93), harassment of women (42), harassment on minors (8) missing (7) among others.
