Hyderabad Metro division MD has directed its security personnel to allow female commuters to carry pepper spray with them inside the metro. The said move was made for self-defense meant for the women. As several instances of incidents are taking place threatening the security of women, all security staff at the station have been now directed to allow women to carry pepper sprays. The issue has come up after incidents of violence and assault against women in the country including the recent r*pe and murder of a Hyderabadi veterinarian.
