Delhi HC sets 48-hour deadline for police to file status report
Taking suo motu cognisance of the rape of a 23-year-old girl in a moving bus, the Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar to file the status report in two days.
The Delhi High Court, which rapped up the police for failing to prevent the rape in a moving bus, asked the government to provide best medical facilities to the victim and her friend.
The Delhi High Court, which described the incident as shameful and shocking, asked the police chief to provide details of the cops patrolling in the area where the girl was raped.
"People are losing faith in the police and judiciary. What was the police doing before this incident?" the court remarked, while questioning the negligence on the part of the Delhi Police.
The victim of the incident is presently undergoing treatment at the Safdarjung Hospital here.
The 23-year-old medical student who was gang-raped and hit with an iron rod for resisting for nearly 45 minutes on a Delhi bus is in critical condition.
According to reports, the girl has undergone four surgeries since yesterday, but doctors say she needs more. The girl is not able to speak, but is scribbling messages for doctors and nurses.
Four of the six men who allegedly raped the student have been arrested. The driver of the bus in which she was gang-raped and tortured, has been remanded to police custody for five days as the cops attempt to arrest the two men who are still absconding.
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has also issued notices to Home Ministry and Delhi Police and sought a report on the incident within two weeks.
