Ms Talwar said, “It is not only the prerogative and accountability of the law enforcement bodies for upkeeping law and order, but the civil society also owes great responsibility towards the maintenance of law and order.

Today, it has emerged as the most effective platform for a collaborative communication between the policy makers and the civil society and to come out with effective redressal.”
