DCW notice to police for not pressing relevant charges in proper manner
New Delhi: The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) issued notice to Delhi Police in a case where a girl died after falling from terrace in Central Delhi. The women rights body seeks reasons for not pressing the relevant serious charges and for not intimating the Commission regarding this incident. However, Delhi Police claimed that proper investigation was done in the case.
According to DCW, the parents of a minor girl approached the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) alleging that their 16-year-old daughter, who went missing on earlier this year, was raped (possibly gang-raped) and thrown from the terrace of a house in Central Delhi. In their complaint, the parents said that though the Delhi Police has arrested five men in this case, they have failed to press charges of rape, murder, kidnapping, POCSO and destruction of evidence in their FIR.
Moreover, the RWA President of Ekta Vihar, who is helping the victim's traumatised mother in seeking justice for her daughter, has been receiving threatening calls from police personnel to withdraw his support to the victim's family.
DCW Chief, Swati Maliwal, has issued the notice to the concerned SHO of Delhi Police.
The notice also seeks the details of the police personnel involved in intimidation of the RWA President and the action taken against them.
"The Commission has also issued notices to Lady Hardinge and Safdarjang Hospital asking for medical reports of the deceased," said DCW in press statement.
DCW Chief Swati Maliwal stated, "Crimes against women and girls is growing in the Capital.
This girl went through unbearable suffering before succumbing to her injuries. She was from a very poor background and her father had already expired a few years back."
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central) Mandeep Randhawa stated that no negligence was done in the investigation.
"We conducted a probe in the incident and also registered the case with proper sections," said DCP Central.
