People should inform the police if they came across any instance of sex determination tests done by any hospital or scanning centre. He asked women to call police through 100 or WhatsApp no 9490617111 whenever they faced any problematic situations. The women should feel everyday was theirs, not only on women’s day, he maintained.The district Collector Anitha Ramachandran has also mingled with the students and interacted with them.
