The Uttar Pradesh police have announced that they will be “anti-Romeo squads” in 11 districts in Lucknow, apparently in order to “protect” women from sexual harassment. Meerut has also launched Operation Romeo, and worryingly Inspector General of Police, Meerut zone, Ajay Anand has said that will carry out the Operation outside their colleges. The UP DGP has apparently announced that the intention is not moral policing.
