As per a report by Hindustan Times, DGP Loknath Behera shared how effectively the women bike squad handled violators, while also helping those in need: 

Daredevil riders have shown what women power is. They are in constant touch with people in quarantine and boost their confidence, at the same time they are tough with violators. They registered several cases in a few days. They handle the situation with care and compassion.

Kerala has seen one of the most successful responses to the Covid-19 outbreak in India.
