NEW DELHI, 24 Nov: The stocking Capital is calling to take cognizance towards its crime graph as nearly 60% people in Delhi do not feel safe in the city, according to a survey by an NGO.

The survey ‘whitepaper’ on “State of Policing and Law and Order in Delhi”, was done by NGO Praja Foundation.

It revealed that 67% people do not feel secure for women, children and senior citizens in their own area, while 25% people do not even inform police about the incident.

In 2014, a total of 2,075 cases of rape were reported which hiked to 2,338 in 2015 even as the survey stated that six rapes happen in the capital everyday.

Shockingly, in about 40% rape cases of 2015, the victims were minors.

While there were 12,913 complaints registered against Delhi Police personnel in 2015 there were only seven cases in which the police officials were charge sheeted, claimed the survey.

It also said a disciplinary action was started against 1,057 police personnel during the year.

Nearly 13,577 burglary cases were reported in 2015.

However,  in Mumbai 33% people  did not feel safe for women, children and senior citizens in their own locality.

In old Delhi’s Chandni Chowk area, nearly 75% people do not feel safe for women, children and senior citizens, claimed the survey.

The NGO collected data through the survey of more than 29,950 households, 60% of the population doesn’t feel safe in Delhi and 64% of people do not feel safe while commuting in Delhi.

The maximum number of people felt unsafe while travelling in South Delhi, according to the findings.

It also highlighted the fact that a close to 25% of people who have been victims have not approached police as they “don’t have any faith in the police/legal system” as compared to Mumbai where 13% of the people had similar thoughts.

Among those who had reported about a crime to police, 29% expressed satisfaction with police’s response.

Woman, Partner Crushed Under Tractor, In-Laws Arrested

The accused and his son were arrested on Thursday





Police have arrested two in-laws of a woman on charges of killing her and her partner, who were crushed under a tractor in Jalna district of Maharashtra allegedly over an “illicit relationship”, an official said on Friday.

The accused, Bathwell Sampat Lalzare and his son Vikas Lalzare, residents of Chapalgaon village under Ghansawangi tehsil, were arrested on Thursday, said Ambad police inspector Aniruddha Nandedkar.

Bathwell Lalzare is the father-in-law of the deceased woman Mariya, a widow, while Vikas Lalzare is her brother in-law, he said.

The police said the 32-year-old Mariya Lalzare’s husband died 10 years ago and she lived with her in-laws.

She was in a relationship with a married man, Harbak Bhagwat (27), a resident of the same village, they said.

Her in-laws opposed their relationship and threatened Bhagwat with dire consequences when they came to know about it, the police said.

Bhagwat had filed a complaint at the Ambad police station and with the district SP against the father-son duo, and also claimed there was a threat to his life from them, they said.

On March 30, Bhagwat and Mariya had eloped and reached Gujarat after which a missing complaint was lodged with the police by her family, they said.

On April 22, the police brought them back from Gujarat and since then they were living together in the village, they said.

On October 28, both were headed on a motorcycle to a nearby village to attend a programme when the accused Vikas Lalzare allegedly hit their motorbike with the tractor and crushed them under the wheels, the police said.

The wounded couple was rushed to a hospital but they succumbed to injuries on the way, the police said.

The wife of Bhagwat accused Vikas Lalzare and his father of killing her husband and Mariya, they said.

“We have registered a case against Vikas and his father under IPC section 302 (murder). Further investigation is going on,” said inspector Nandedkar.

With Delhi reporting record jumps in Covid-19 cases for two straight days, Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Friday emphasised the importance of wearing face masks, saying people should consider them as a “vaccine” against the virus till the time one is available.

The spread of the virus can be stopped to a large extent if everyone wears a mask. Masks have more benefits than a lockdown, the minister said.

Delhi has reported record jumps of over 5,000 Covid-19 cases for the past two days. It reported 5,673 cases on Wednesday and 5,739 on Thursday.

“People should consider masks as a vaccine till there is one. The spread of the virus can be stopped to a large extent if everyone wears a mask,” Jain told PTI.

“A mask has more benefits than a lockdown,” he added.

The Delhi government has cited its new strategy involving aggressive contact tracing and testing as one of the reasons behind the sudden surge in the number of infections in the city.

The Union Health Ministry, however, has attributed the rise to social gatherings during festivities, deteriorating air quality, and increasing incidence of respiratory disorders.

The positivity rate in Delhi also jumped to 9.55 per cent on Thursday as the infection tally mounted to 3.75 lakh. The number of active cases in the city rose to 30,952 on Thursday from 29,378 the previous day.

Twenty-seven more fatalities were reported on Thursday, pushing the death toll in the national capital to 6,423.
