|Government Assures Strong Action on Gang Rape Case |
Commission of Enquiry to be set up
| Following is the text of the statement made by the Union Home Minister Shri Sushil Kumar Scinde on the gang rape case in Delhi : |
“The Government is extremely concerned about the shocking occurrence of gang rape, which took place in Delhi on 16th December 2012.
All the six accused have been arrested by the police, the last one yesterday from Jharkhand. Sufficient evidence has been gathered to prosecute them and the charge sheet will be filed very shortly. Government is requesting the Court for a speedy trial through a fast track court on a day to day basis.
Prompt action has also been taken against the transporter whose bus was used for this heinous crime. Permits for all the nine vehicles owned by this transporter have been cancelled.
The victim is being provided the best medical care. Government will do whatever is necessary for her recovery. Her condition is being monitored very closely. She has given a statement about the crime to an Executive Magistrate last night.
Government shares the widespread concern and support that has been expressed throughout society for the girl who has so suffered. Government also respects the right of legitimate protest. At the same time, there is need to exercise calm at this juncture and for everyone to work together to improve the safety and security environment.
On its part, Government is committed to ensuring the safety of women in the Capital as well as in the rest of the country. A number of steps have recently been taken in Delhi, including the following:-
(i) Improving the public transport system by increasing the number of buses at night.
(ii) Installation of GPS on all public transport vehicles to ensure that they do not stray from their scheduled routes.
(iii) Ensuring that all personnel deployed on public transport carry identification badges and are verified.
(iv) Proactive and enhanced patrolling by police vans/motor cycles along routes taken by families and women returning late at night from entertainment hubs and work places.
To ensure a strong law to deal with crimes of this nature, Government will take immediate steps for the amendment of the Criminal Law for enhanced and more effective punishment in the rarest of the rare cases of sexual assault such as this.
Government will set up a Commission of Inquiry under the Commissions of Inquiry Act 1952 to review responses to this shocking crime and to suggest measures to improve the safety and security of women in the capital.”
