Girl trainees of SSTSDI sensitised to ‘good touch and bad touch’

Sri City, July 30, 2018:-  With rising incidences of sexual assault against young children in the society, Sri City Police Division with the assistance of Sri City Foundation has been coercing on edifying girl students in the region on ‘good touch – bad touch’.  As a part of this awareness programme, on Monday, in a lecture session held at Sri City Simenes Technical Skill Development Institute (SSTSDI),  a batch of 50 school girls was apprised of good touch and bad touch by Mrs. Vimalakumari, Sub Divisional Police Officer, Sri City.

She sensitised girls on how to differentiate between a ‘good touch and a bad touch’, through a video presentation. Students were given instructions on how one should react or respond in an uncomfortable situation. At the end of the session,  so as to review their understanding, she asked questions on the topic. Mrs. Vimalakumari said that they need not fear to anyone, and if they come across such incidents of bad touch, advised them to inform to the parents and complain to the police.

The students who belong to AP Social Welfare Residential School (Gurukul Patashala), Sullurpet are undergoing a ten-days skill foundation course at SSTSDI. Mr. Surendrakumar, Manager, Sri City Foundation, Trainers of SSTSDI  and Mr. Subba Reddy, Sub Inspector, Sri City, Police Station were also present.
