AAP leaders meet Shah over rising crime in city
NEW DELHI: AAP leaders on Tuesday met Union Home Minister Amit Shah to raise the issue of the 'deteriorating' law and order situation in the national Capital. "We met the Home Minister today. We requested that a meeting of the Delhi Police Commissioner, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Home Minister along with his officials be held to review the overall situation after which the necessary steps can be taken to improve the law and order in Delhi," said Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh.
The memorandum apprised the Home Minister of the situation in Delhi. The Rajya Sabha MPs wrote, "Crime in Delhi is increasing by the day. Loot and murder on the streets of Delhi are being reported. There is no fear of the police among criminals. People do not feel safe even on public streets." Referring to the shooting in Dwarka last month, Sanjay Singh said, "The video of the incident that has gone viral shows that criminals have no fear of police or the law. Criminals stopped a moving car on the road and sprayed it with bullets. In June alone, 43 shooting incidents took place on the streets of Delhi, 243 round firing incidents took place, in which 16 people died."
He said that elderly people were being murdered and bullets were being fired in the streets. "As many as nine murders have been reported in 24 hours. Three people from one family have been killed. Cases of chain-snatching are being reported almost daily,"
