New Delhi: A few days after quitting a top job with the police, the country’s first woman IPS officer Kiran Bedi on Sunday launched an e-portal for complainants who were refused help at police stations.

Bedi along with her friends at “Mission Safer India”, a project of her NGO “India Vision Foundation”, will act as a “pressure group” to seek appropriate redressal for complainants.

People can log on to and e-mail their complaint to the group, which would be forwarded to respective state police headquarters, Bedi told reporters here. “Approach us through e-mail, if you have visited the police station or police post to register your complaint and if it remains unattended or not acknowledged,” she said.

The Safer India will help people in 16 states. “Once we get a complaint, we will scrutinise it and forward it to state police headquarters. We won’t recommend any action in any case but it is up to police to decide what action should follow,” she said.

However, she said, the group wants people to first visit the police station and try to register their complaint. “This mission is to strengthen police services to provide a safer India and not an alternative to police responsibilities,” she said.

She said this would be a turning point in police reforms. Bedi's application for voluntary retirement was accepted on December 24 and she had said that she would work to ensure reformation in police forces
