Delhi Gangrape: Now Kejriwal ignites row; Sonia, Rahul tense?

Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, Dec 16: It's been a year since horrible rape took place in Delhi. The infamous gangrape case, which is also known as Nirbhaya or Damini case, shook the entire country in Dec 2012. Now, after one year, Arvind Kejriwal ignited the row over crime against women and security in Delhi and other parts of India.

Posting his statement on his Facebook wall, Kejriwal on Monday, Dec 16 wrote, "One year since the gruesome Damini incident, all we have is a set of recommendations by late Justice Verma and the women in Delhi are still anything but safe."

"No rape case in Delhi in last one year has seen face of the court apart from the Damini incident. No concrete security measures have been taken and still most of the police personnel in Delhi are engaged in VIP security," added the leader of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Continuing his post, Kejriwal also left a question for aam aadmi (common man) -- "should this not change?" Kejriwal's question was directed at securities provided to VIPs including minister and political leaders.

Kejriwal's question may create problem form Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi who are yet to recover from recent poll debacle. Nirbhaya case was one among the reasons which led Congress to face defeat in election in Delhi.

A 23-year-old paramedical student was gangraped by six men and later was thrown out of a moving bus on Dec 16, 2012. All six men including a juvenile were arrested. Main accused Ram Singh committed suicide in Tihar jail. All other accused, except the juvenile, were given death sentence. However, the juvenile was awarded three years imprisonment.

The Nirbhaya case forced aam-aadmi to come out of their houses demanding security for women. Protests were carried out at several places across the country, especially in Delhi. The case was heard in a special fast-track court.

Even after the gruesome gangrape in the national capital, many other rape cases have been reported in the country and in Delhi. The national capital is also known as rape capital of India.
