A ban on covering faces by women while driving motorbikes irks woman's organizations in Pune

Satyapal Singh, who took charge of the City Police Commissioner last week has disapproved women covering their faces while driving.

The contention of Singh is that terrorists can take advantage of the practice to disguise themselves.

Many college girls and office-going women here cover their faces from head to chin to protect themselves from heat and dust while riding bikes.

A large number of women, including mayor Rajlaxmi Bhosale and several Woman's organizations have opposed the police ban.

The controversy also hit the blogosphere with girls protesting the ban on blogs and social networking sites such as Orkut and Facebook.
