These centres will act as a single window system for medical, legal and psychological assistance to victims of rape, sexual harassment and dowry cases,” a DCW statement said.

A decision in this regard was taken during a meeting of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and Union Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi last month.
