Delhi rape: Shinde meets top police brass, to speak about actions in Parliament
Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on Wednesday met top police officials of Delhi to discuss the current law and order situation after Congress president Sonia Gandhi wrote strongly-worded letter to Shinde, demanding action in the horrible gang rape of a 23-year-old woman on a running bus.
MoS Home RPN Singh and Home Secretary RK Singh also attended the meeting.
"I have met all top police officials including, home secretary, related officers as well as junior police officers of the area concerned. We have taken some decision, which I can't reveal as of now because Parliament is in session," Shinde told reporters after the meeting.
The medical student was gang-raped in the Indian capital on Sunday night (December 16) and was later thrown out of the moving vehicle in a semi-naked condition.
Gandhi's letter to Shinde said, "It's a shame for all of us who are responsible for security of our cities. This monstrous crime deserves not only universal condemnation but also the government's most urgent attention. It is imperative that the police and other agencies concerned are sensitise to the danger our daughters, sisters, mothers face every day. The security agencies must be motivated, trained and equipped to deal with this menace."
The Congress president had earlier also spoken to both on the phone after angry Opposition leaders asked the government to explain in Parliament what it was doing to protect women in an increasingly unsafe capital.
