Tokio Marine & Fire Insurance Co. will offer an insurance product from January to help cover costs for women who find they have to seek protection from stalkers, the company said Tuesday.

Japan’s biggest property and casualty insurance company said it will offer the product, the first of its kind in Japan, through a tieup with Sogo Keibi Hosho Co., a major security service provider. Sogo Keibi will provide insured women with advice and help locate and collect evidence against stalkers so they can be prosecuted under the antistalking law, Tokio Marine said.
