Gurgaon: Taking cue from the barbaric Delhi gang rape of a paramedical student in a moving bus, the Gurgaon traffic police have reintroduced pink auto rickshaws, especially for women.

Amidst call for better security for women, the Gurgaon police have tried to revive its most ambitious Pink autos project by registering 21 pink autos, which will start from the MG Road Metro station and will only ferry women.

In order to ensure better security to women, police have verified the drivers of these Pink autos and these autos will provide service round-the-clock. Not only this, some features like panic button and GPS have also been installed in the autos so that the women passengers can raise alarm when in need.

Earlier, these autos were introduced in the year 2010 but failed to spell out its magic and hence gradually faded away for want of women passengers.
