Delhi emerging crime capital of the country: Sanjay Singh
NEW DELHI: The matter of alleged beating up of an auto driver by police in the city was raised in the Rajya Sabha on Monday by AAP member Sanjay Singh.
Raising the issue during the Zero Hour, he said Delhi was emerging as the "crime capital" of the country and urged the Home Ministry convene a meeting to discuss the issue.
Singh cited several incidents of crime in Delhi to stress his point.
He alleged that 220 round of bullets were fired on Delhi roads during the past one month while 243 incidents of rape were reported during the past year. Incidents of murder too were on the rise, he said.
The AAP MP further alleged that auto driver Sarabjeet Singh was dragged on the road and beaten up.
The incident that took place in Mukherjee Nagar earlier this month had triggered a public outcry, with members of a particular community taking to the streets demanding action against the police personnel involved.
Singh suggested the Home Ministry immediately convene a meeting and the Delhi Chief Minister too should be called.
The crime must stop, he added.
