Good job Kiran Bedi on surprise check, but where is the helmet

Pudducherry Lt Governor Kiran Bedi riding pillion

Bedi, who was riding pillion, used her dupatta to partially cover her face to avoid being recognised.

Bedi said she feels that Puducherry is safe for women "even at night" but police should take some measures to enhance security. She is known for her stringent actions and discipline. She rode on a scooter which another woman was driving and surveyed various roads of the city.

The tweet also revealed that she takes regular rounds of the city to check on security and cleanliness.

Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, Kiran Bedi slipped into disguise to measure the safety of women after dark. "Also urge people to connect with PCR, 100/ & inform their concerns", she said in a tweet.

This tour of town to check on women's safety in the night, however, is a first.

Notably, since Bedi became the Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, she has become popular due to her regular field visits and surprise inspections.

- Lt. Gov. Puducherry (@LGov_Puducherry)Not wearing helmet was a careful choice. She also shared a video clip of her incognito night round.

Bedi has also identified some areas that need to be improved.

"Both wanted to appear vulnerable and wanted to see how we women driving a scooty at night are looked at", she said.

However, when one of the media houses targeted her for not wearing helmet, she was quick to respond that it was by choice.

In February, Chief Minister V Narayanasamy declared that two-wheeler riders would compulsorily have to wear helmets from 1 May this year.
