Bedi, who was riding pillion, used her dupatta to partially cover her face to avoid being recognised.

Lt Governor Kiran Bedi, who wanted to check for herself how safe Puduchery is for women, made a decision to go on a scooter ride around the city at night. "Just back from a night round". Starting from Raj Nivas, Ms Bedi and her team members went through the important crowded areas of the city including Anna Salai and Kamaraj Salai. She was riding pillion on a scooty and her mission was to assess women's safety in Puducherry.

Kiran Bedi took to her Twitter handle to give her clean chit to Pondy by night after her surprise ride around various areas of the city late Friday night to make an on the spot appraisal of the security arrangements and to gauge how safe the city was for woman at night. The former top cop also shared pictures of her taking rounds on scooter and bicycle and captioned it as, "From a midnight Incognito #Suraksha Round to the 6AM weekend #Swachh Round..." "Also urge people to connect with PCR, 100/ & inform their concerns", she said in a tweet. What Bedi did was that she went incognito and rode the streets of Puducherry.

However, Bedi, known for her no-nonsense attitude, faced some serious questions from Twitterati, as neither she nor the rider, were wearing a helmet. "Both wanted to appear vulnerable & wanted to see how we women driving a scooty at night are looked at" she wrote on Twitter explaining about the missing helmet. "Good job. But where is helmet?" "After all, women's safety is of paramount importance", said Onirban Dutta, a medical practitioner residing at Vaithikuppam.
