The helpline number 181 to be launched on Monday by the Delhi government for helping women in distress has hit some last minute obstacles. The helpline number is now expected to be activated by Monday evening.
The number '181' can be dialled from landline and mobile phones.
Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had announced the setting up of this helpline last week following widespread protests in the city in the wake of the brutal gang-rape of 23-year-old medical student. After battling for her life for 13 days, the girl died in a Singapore hospital on Saturday.
