Parrikar calls Delhi govt’s approach to rape ‘casual’


Chief minister Manohar Parrikar accused the Delhi government for having a 'casual' approach to the increase in the number of rape cases in the national capital.
Speaking to mediapersons on Tuesday on the sideline of the protest demonstration organized by the Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) yuva morcha, against atrocities on women and the recent gang rape incident in Delhi, Parrikar said, "I think what happened in Delhi is linked to the overall scenario in Delhi. There should be strict, positive and quick action and if that happens then these types of incidents don't receive encouragement," Parrikar said.
Parrikar also said that Nirbhaya's (name given by TOI) rape on December 16 is brutal and an attempt to murder. "The accused should be severely punished," he added.
I have repeatedly told the Goa police that they should maintain zero tolerance towards crimes against women and children. "I have been stressing from day one that more lady police should join the force," he said. [TOI]
