Following the horrific Sakinaka rape and assault case, Maharashtra police chief Sanjay Pandey on Sunday urged his men to act swiftly to stop the crimes taking place against the woman.

Taking to social media the state’s Director General of Police Pandey said: “Rape and murder of minor girls had taken place in Maharashtra in the past few days and the police must probe them as soon as possible, arrest the culprits and charge sheets must be filed within 60 days”.

He also said the police must maintain vigil at railway stations, colleges and other places to keep a check on eve-teasing.
