Kejriwal said the people who commit a crime against women should be boycotted not only by society but by their families as well.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday condemned the increasing incident of violence against women in India and called it a sign of "mental depravity".

"We have decided to introduce a campaign," Kejriwal said, adding that the structure of the campaign will be finalised in the coming days. 

"In every school and college, boys will be given an oath to not misbehave with any woman. This will help boys understand their responsibilities," he said.

"We have decided to introduce a campaign to change the mindset of the people. The girls will be asked to talk to their brothers and ask them not to misbehave with any woman," the Delhi CM said.

"And if the brother did not listen and misbehave with any girl, then the sister should say that she has no relations left with him," the Chief Minister added.
