Dhemaji: Rimpi Tripathi, a 21-year old girl of Gogamukh has brought glory to the state by inventing a rape prevention device. In an interaction, Rimpi eloquently told that the device could fully protect a girl or woman from rape at anytime and at any place. She told that device was worn by a woman as an inner in the upper portion of the body. If someone tried to grab it, it generate electric shock in the outer side and if one was shocked he could not stand up again up to 10 minutes. The battery attached to the device, which named as Society Harnessing Equipment (SHE), could create such electric shock up to 82 times. Moreover, immediately after the grab, the pressure sensor attached with the device sends two messages to two different locations-one to the family or whose number was fixed and another to the nearby police station. “The first message”, she told, “informs about the location with the mobile GPS and the GSM about the location and the next message is sent as ‘need help’. The device can also kept in off/on mode with a switch over it.”
