Delhi unsafe: CM

The Chief Minister of Delhi Shiela Dixit has admitted that that Delhi was certainly unsafe.

She was raped in a moving bus on Sunday by six persons, beaten with iron rods and later thrown on road in semi-naked condition. She is in critical condition and doctors are making every possible effort to save her.

“The policemen need to change their mindset. Nobody monitors CCTVs installed in Delhi, I’m skeptical about isolated measured announced recently…if closing bars at 1 am will ensure safety, so be it. The incident had left Delhi stunned and I feel ashamed that I can’t do anything,” added Dixit.

Meanwhile, the 6th accused involved in gang rape of 23-year-old female , who was absconding, has been arrested by police. Five have already been arrested.

Police fires tear gas shells

The students, woman activists and people from all walks of life staged demonstrations in Delhi and other parts of India against the gang rape of a young woman in a moving bus. Carrying placards and banners, the protestors were demanding speedy trial of the case, capital punishment to the rapists and justice to the rape victim.

The protests were going on at many other places including historic Indian Gate.

“The protesters need to calm down, only then can a dialogue happen from the government’s side in an orderly manner. We can’t let the protesters break barricades and run into government property. The government has taken its stance that it will demand the harshest punishment for the rapists,” Indian Home Secretary  R P N Singh told CNN-IBN.
