App for women's safety launched by Delhi police

Union home minister Rajnath Singh introduced a new mobile phone Application called 'Himmat' that is meant to help protect women. The App was introduced particularly for working women who sometimes travel alone late at night. It allows them to alert Delhi police to any threat. Himmat can be downloaded free from the Delhi Police website right away. Himmat is meant for cell phones working on Android, since a survey revealed that most working women use Android based phones. However, in due course the facility will be extended to other operating systems as well.
