A special cell was set up at Ramna Police Station in the capital city today for helping women and children aimed at making police more people oriented and friendly.
The cell was set up at a room of Ramna Thana which was decorated with festoons, banners and portraits of famous women such as Mother Teresa, Begum Sufia Kamal and Begum Rokeya.
A woman police official will sit here every day to hear problems of women and children to give necessary legal assistance.
