MP government orders regular inspection of women's hostels
"I have taken a meeting of the officials concerned and directed them to conduct monthly inspections of such (state) aided and unaided facilities where girls are residing," Chouhan told reporters at his residence.
"The inspection will be carried out by the collector and superintendent of police in each district on a monthly basis," he said.
Chouhan said similar rules will also be framed for private hostels to ensure the safety of inmates.
The director, Ashwini Sharma, was arrested last night.
The complainant, a resident of Dhar district, has alleged that Sharma raped her repeatedly during her stay at the hostel, a government-aided center, over the past three years, a senior police officer had said yesterday.
Talking to reporters yesterday, Congress media cell chairperson Shobha demanded a social audit of all facilities in the state which house women.
