According to Seenu, the underwear has a smart lock that won’t open until the password was key in and she also installed an electronic device that was used as a GPS and as an emergency calling device. She also added that the device would automatically send out messages to the police, who will foil the rape attempt, and to the relatives of the woman when somebody will try to molest her.
She also said that the anti-rape underwear could only be wear when the woman will go to a place where she finds unsafe or if she is traveling alone. Wearing this anti-rape underwear can help save the woman from men who would try to mistreat her and violate her dignity.
