MEDIA RELEASE

(18 DEC 2012, NEW DELHI)

 

CAPITAL OF INDIAN LEADING THE COUNTRY IN RAPES & MURDERS

 

WAKE UP DELHI BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont you think that it is high time that Delhi Police gets into the act and sheds some of the lethargy to restore the pride of Police Department and city of Delhi. Sorry to state that past Commissioners have towed their political masters and today we are seeing the capital city of the country fast becoming the rape & murder capital of India. The criminals have least respect for the law and authority as some of your predecessors may have shielded the law breakers due to which they operate openly & fearlessly.

Strangely New Delhi is the seat of the Central Government, State Govenrment, all the MP’s of the country, major intelligence and investigation departments and home to major VVIP’s and still such heinous crimes are committed and criminals get away with no action from the government. In 2012 653 rapes have been committed with no justice to the victims infact the criminals have got away. Most disgusting has been the comments from Panchayats or Khaps or society that ladies/women should not venture out or their should be no communication with them. Have you ever thought of restraining the young men who are at large after committing such crimes? Why should the women be in PURDAH – don’t they have equal right to freedom.

What is our government and justice department doing – waiting for someday when they gather courage to enact strong laws or waiting for the day when some VIP’s daughter/sister/mother is harassed or raped to wake up? Politicians are only interested in the media coverage but fall short of taking any serious action. They are more interested in “RESERVATION IN PROMOTION” or “CASH SUBSIDY SCHEME” which gives them political mileage

Lok Satta Party is fully supportive of all strong action that Delhi Police may take and enact to ensure such acts are not repeated and also set a strong deterrent for the future offenders.

Lok Satta Party suggest the following:

 

- - Free Delhi Police of their political masters. Make them accountable and fix responsibility on the DCP/ACP/SHO of the area(s) where the incident takes place and suspend them immediately if no action is taken.

- - Setup fast track courts to settle issues relating to rape, molestation, eve teasing with maximum decision time at 3months to pronounce the guilty.

- - Proper lighting should be there on roads

- - Police should patrol thoroughly during all times/hours to prevent such incidence. Major areas where possibility exists we should install cameras on roads so that nearest PCR vans can be alerted.

- - Any political interference in such issue should be strongly dealt with and condemned in the strongest words publicly.


LLok Satta Party has also written a letter to the Home Ministry though we all know that it is going to fall on deaf ears and is planning on gheraoing the HM residence and also the Delhi CM's residence to make them to act fast on this major issue.
