Mr Bommai, who chaired a meeting with officials from the police and law departments on steps to be taken to protect women, stated:”Over 30 lakh women and girls downloaded the Surakasha App up to now. The moment they press on it, will get to the spot and the police will find the alert. At present the duration between the authorities reaching the place and receiving the calls is seven minutes. We would like to reduce it further so that we ought to reach areas within five minutes – rather than seven minutes – of getting calls.”
