    Society should help in fighting crime: Delhi CM

    New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has shifted some of the blame on the public saying civil society should speak up when they see crimes being committed in the city. Sheila made the statement even as hundreds of students from various Delhi University colleges are up in arms against the killing of 20-year-old Radhika Tanwar and increasing crime against women in the capital.

    "Civil society should also take responsibility and people should be more responsible when they see acts of crime in front of them." Sheila said on Thursday.

    Meanwhile, Delhi Police claim that they have got some leads in the murder case of Radhika.

    "We have managed to narrow down the investigations, but still need eyewitnesses to come forward to help us," said South Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police HGS Dhaliwal.

    "We do not have any eyewitness who has seen the incident happening. Two people have given some information very relevant to the case. We have managed to narrow down on the scope of investigation. I appeal the person whosoever has seen the crime happening to come up and help the police," Dhaliwal said.

    Radhika, a second year undergraduate student of Ram Lal Anand College, was shot dead on Tuesday near her college. The police have not made any arrests in the case.

    Police claimed that there was personal motive behind the murder of Radhika.

    The police also claimed that the assailant knew about her movement completely - knew what time she left her residence, took the bus, got dropped at Satya Niketan bus stop. And the foot over bridge had been carefully selected to murder her.
