What Usha Mehra committee says (With 'Usha Mehra panel suggests single centre for rape victims')

Some of the major recommendations made by Justice (retd) Usha Mehra in her report on the Dec 16 Delhi gang rape that was submitted to the law ministry Friday:

* One stop centre, like those already operating in Bangladesh, Malaysia and South Africa, where the victim should be taken. There should be a councillor for the victim, and a trained nurse qualified in collecting evidence.

* There should be a woman police inspector at the centre

* There should be a forensic expert at the centre

* Sensitise police officers to such crimes
