If you or any woman you know is suffering from any violence or is a victim of a crime in Uttar Pradesh, you can easily report the crime through the web portal Vikalp. Vikalp ensure a police response within 24 hours and all cases remain open until you are fully satisfied with the action of the local police. This is the first such app in the country to ensure full and complete responsibility and accountability on the part of the government.
Here is the link to access VIKALP: https://uppolice.gov.in/en/crimeagainstwomen
I hope women and girls can break the culture of silence and get the help they need. Please don’t stay silent!
I will continue working to make the police more responsive to the needs of all women and girls in the state.
