AAP supporters protest against Delhi Police

New Delhi, July 21 (IANS) Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supporters on Tuesday staged a protest against Delhi Police outside the Anand Parbat police station here.

The protestors were agitated over police inaction that had led to the murder of a teenaged girl in Anand Parbat area last week.

“Crime against women is increasing in the city. The victim had earlier complained against the assailants, saying they stalked her. Police did not pay heed to her complaints which led to her murder,” an AAP supporter said.

“We want the resignation of ACP Patel Nagar and SHO Anand Parbat police station,” he said.

Meenakshi, a Class 11 student, was repeatedly stabbed by two neighbours after she objected to their verbal abuse on Thursday (July 16).

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal later called on the victim’s family and announced a compensation of Rs.5 lakh to her family.

The Delhi government had ordered a magisterial inquiry into the case and also sought a report from Delhi Police.

Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi met Kejriwal on Monday and during the meet, the chief minister asked Bassi to provide details of the number of crimes against women.

Kejriwal also said the performance of the police force was not up to the mark.
