The spokesperson said 16 policewomen cyclists participated in the Jagriti Yatra and were welcomed by the women and girls who attended the social awareness events organised across these districts.

The ‘Jagriti Yatra’ will cover the remaining 12 Police districts of Haryana in the coming month, followed by its culmination on 10 December 2021 with a closing ceremony to be conducted at Police Headquarters. With an aim to ensure the safety of women, these women cyclists of Haryana police had decided to promote the cause in their own unique way, the spokesperson added.
