Can the vic­tim claim ‘de­fi­ciency in ser­vices'?

About a cou­ple of months back, Pune po­lice in­tro­duced an in­ter­est­ing ini­tia­tive to tackle is­sues like eve-teas­ing, stalk­ing and rag­ging in schools and col­leges. Ev­ery po­lice sta­tion in the city got down to se­lect­ing a Po­lice Kaka, an of­fi­cer who would li­ai­son with schools and col­leges un­der their ju­ris­dic­tion and visit cam­puses on a reg­u­lar ba­sis for ca­sual in­ter­ac­tions with stu­dents The Po­lice Kaka will also en­sure that in­sti­tutes are fol­low­ing guide­lines and rules as per the law in or­der to re­strict rag­ging in­ci­dences. The move has been wel­comed by all stake­hold­ers be­cause de­spite declar­ing rag­ging to be a pun­ish­able of­fence, the prac­tice con­tin­ues to haunt not just stu­dents but also their parents, teach­ers as well as the law-and-or­der ma­chin­ery. – Dr Prem Lata, Con­sumer Awak­en­ing For­mer Mem­ber, CDRF-Delhi
