Court asks force to pull up socks

The Delhi High Court on Thursday told Delhi Police to urgently increase the number of Police Control Room (PCR) vans and remove all tinted windows from vehicles.

Judges Murugesan and Jain asked the home ministry, which controls Delhi Police, to increase the number of PCR vans in the capital to ensure better safety to people. They also directed the police to ensure the removal of dark films and curtains from all vehicles ‘without any delay’. Justice Jain asked Delhi Police to take early action on the 20 per cent of PCR vans now parked in garages for want of repairs. On Wednesday, the court asked why the Delhi Police commissioner and the deputy commissioner of police heading the area where the gang-rape took place were not suspended.

The court said, ‘We have absolutely nothing except public interest... We want the system to work properly.’
