New Delhi, Mar 13 (UNI) Voicing serious concern in the Lok Sabha over the killing of an elderly woman and her daughter, both lawyers, in Delhi yesterday, Prof Vijay Kumar Malhotra (BJP) today demanded the creation of a special police wing to exclusively deal with the worsening law and order situation that had turned the city into a ''crime capital.'' Raising the issue during zero hour, Prof Malhotra held the Centre directly responsible for the rising incidents of murder, rape and abduction, making the residents, particularly women and the aged, feel unsafe in the city.
The Centre should immediately hold a meeting with the ten MPs from the city -- seven in the Lok Sabha and three in the Rajya Sabha -- to draw up a strategy to check the spiralling graph in the city.
The government should have no hesitation in doing this as nine of the MPs belonged to the Congress, he said.
The pathetic situation was a ''matter of shame'' not only for the city but for the entire country as Delhi Police was directly under the control of the Union Home Ministry, he said.
When the government was having a separate pool for VIP security, it should have an exclusive wing for maintenance of law and order as well, the BJP leader contended.
