The Union Home Ministry and Delhi police have failed to file a counter report in brutal Delhi gang rape case before National Human Rights Commission. A 23-year-old woman was gang raped on a moving bus in New Delhi and then thrown out of the bus along with her male friend on December 16 last year.
Taking cognizance of the incident, the NHRC observed: “The incident which has come in a series of other brutal rapes in the recent past has shaken the public confidence in the law and order machinery of the city, especially its capacity to safeguard the physical safety and security of women. The Commission is in great pains over such brutal assault and rapes which are grave violation of human rights taking place shaking the conscience of one and all.”
Human rights activist Akhand, who is a petitioner, said that, NHRC directed Home Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs and Commissioner of Police, Delhi to file a report within two weeks. But till date no response has been received from these officials. Again, NHRC has issued reminder to these officials to submit report within two weeks positively.
