Sanjay Pandey (I.P.S.) - Commissioner of Police, Mumbai stated that nearly 90% of women do not lodge a complaint. He advised women to not hold back and suffer, come forward and lodge a complaint with the police. There should be no tolerance for crime.

Satish L Maneshinde - Renowned Criminal Lawyer specified that after 75 years of Indian Independence Day, women are still fighting for their freedom, liberty, and justice. Women are fighting for not just themselves but also their family and society. Women should dig up the courage to fight injustice and not succumb to it.

Speaking at the occasion – Nishreen Khorakiwala – President IMC Ladies’ Wing stated- “Violence against women is present in every country, cutting across boundaries of culture, class, education, income, ethnicity and age. Every day the newspapers carry stories of atrocities committed against women and cases of women being exploited. Irrespective of age, qualifications or background, women seem to make easy targets for abuse. It is for this reason that various laws targeted at protecting and uplifting women and girls have been formulated and enacted.”
