Keeping in view the increasing number of cases of rape and sexual abuse a 19-year-old girl from UP has managed to create an underwire that has ample gears, gadgets and arrangement to prevent rape.
With the society yet to cure itself of the ”epidemic” of sexual abuse, women have been devising their own ways of protection from repeat harassers.
Seenu Kumari, a young girl from UP has created a ”rape-proof” underwear. According to Kumari, the underwear is equipped with GPS and a smart lock.
“I have put a smart lock that won’t open till you key in the password. The underwear will have a combination lock which will only unlock with the set passcode. I have also installed an electronic device that is equipped with a GPS and calling facility. When somebody tries to molest a woman, this device will send out messages to relatives of the woman and also to the police,” Kumari was quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.
Cases of sexual abuse in a hugely-populated state like UP are not uncommon. Yet, it was the report of the rape of a seven-year-old girl which inspired BSc student Seenu, to develop this underwear.
The underwear is bulletproof and cannot be cut using a knife, revealed Kumari. In many cases, criminals of rape cases escape due to lack of evidence on their involvement in the case. Keeping this issue in mind the inventor has fixed a video camera in the underwear. It is installed to record the culprit’s photo which can be used later to identify the accused.
As per reports, the current prototype of the underwear has been sent to National Innovation Foundation in Allahabad for patenting.
