Seenu claims that the lock won’t open without the password, ensuring the safety of the woman. The GPS, on the other hand, will tell her location to her family and police.

Video feature is for recording the face of the attacker for recognition purposes later.

The underwear costs around 4300 INR and Seenu is hoping to launch it in the bigger market. Other features of the garment include bulletproof and cut-proof material. 

Here’s the video of her explaining all the features:
