Delhi gangrape: HC pulls up police over report
The court called for a more detailed response on the measures that are being taken to prevent crimes against women.
New Delhi: The Delhi Court pulled up the police on Friday and said it was not satisfied with the investigation report filed on the brutal gangrape and assault of a 23-year-old student inside a private bus on December 16. Terming the report as being evasive on police officers on duty at the route taken by the bus when the heinous crime was being committed, the court called for a more detailed response on the measures that are being taken to prevent crimes against women.
"We are not satisfied with your report on what the policemen on duty were doing at that time. This aspect is evasive. We need a more detailed response on measures to prevent such crimes in future," the court observed. The court will hear the case on January 9 and asked the police to submit a detailed response then.
The counsel assisting the court said the victim should be admitted to a super speciality hospital. The Delhi government lawyer told the court that if doctors made a recommendation, it would be done.
The court also took note of the huge delay in the results of forensic tests and said that very often there is a shortage of chemicals and manpower and shortage of skilled workers. The court also directed the government to look into this aspect too and added that cases should not get delayed because of this.
Meanwhile, police have arrested the fifth suspect in the case. The Parliament Standing Committee on Home Affairs has also asked Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar to appear before it on December 27.
