Narendra Modi asks Delhi Police to bring culprits of recent incidents of vandalism to book
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today summoned Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi and asked him to ensure a safe an secure environment in national capital. This step was taken by the Prime Minister after a Christian school was vandalized in South Delhi last night.

Narendra Modi directed Bassi to take strict action against the people who were involved in vandalizing the convent school situated in South Delhi's Vasant Vihar area. Before this school attack incident, a church in Vasant Kunj was also vandalized by some unknown people.

According to a statement issued by Prime Minister's Office, Narendra Modi expressed his deep concern and anguish over the rising crime rate in the Capital. The Prime Minister asked the Police Commissioner to speedily investigate the recent incidents of vandalism and ensure that the guilty are brought to book.

The Prime Minister also spoke over telephone to the Union Home Secretary, L.C. Goyal. "The Prime Minister asked the Home Secretary to pay special attention to the rising incidents of crime, and vandalism, and to work towards ensuring the safety and security of women in the Capital," says the statement.

Meanwhile Delhi Chief Minister-designate Arvind Kejriwal has also condemned the attack on the convent school and indicated that his government won't tolerate such attacks.

In the convent school attack, an unidentified group of people entered the Holy Child Auxilium School and destroyed the CCTV cameras installed in the school and then damaged the office of the school principal. The school children were sent back to home immediately after this incident.

After the primary investigation, police is saying that it was a case of theft and not religious-oriented desecration. Police and school authorities said that Rs. 8000 was stolen from the principal's office and a donation box was also broken and money looted from it. "Money was stolen from a donation box in the school premise. This is a case of theft, not a matter of desecration," said Bassi reportedly. 

HRD minister Smriti Irani visited the school after the incident took place.
