The Yogi Adityanath Government of Uttar Pradesh on Friday directed the state police to ensure that no inhumane measure was adopted in the name of ensuring security to women.

After Allahabad High Court's order, the Uttar Pradesh's BJP government has asked the anti-Romeo squads of Uttar Pradesh Police to strictly follow the guidelines. 

There should be no shaving of heads, blackening of faces or "murga pose" (sit-ups while holding ears), a senior official said in Lucknow.

The guidelines have been issued after the intervention of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath amidst reports of harassment by anti-Romeo squads.

 These special squads of UP Police were formed after the Yogi Aditynath government assumed office this month, fulfilling one of the poll promises of the BJP.
