In the event that you visit the Kerala Police headquarters in Thiruvananthapuram, then probably you’ll be welcomed by Kerala Police-BOT, the office’s most up to date enlist. What won’t slip your notice is that Kerala Police-BOT is a sparkling white humanoid robot assistant in khaki accents, wearing a constable’s crested top. Kerala Police-BOT was introduced by Kerala’s Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan yesterday, says a tweet by the Kerala Police.

The robot clearly sports womanly facial highlights, including a precise dark bindi on its brow. “Women empowerment and gender equality were remembered while settling on the gender of the first RoboCop. Likewise, the way that most front office works are overseen by women was considered,” said Loknath Behra, the Director General of Police (DGP) in an announcement.
