New Delhi, Oct 16 (UNI) In the wake of the murder of television journalist Soumya Vishwanathan, a petitioner has approached the Delhi High Court seeking better security for people working late nights in the capital and adjoining areas.

Sanjiv Kumar, advocate, has filed a petition in the High Court stating that due to lack of adequate security in the capital, Soumya had to lose her life. There are several other incidents in which people have lost their lives due to inadequate security arrangements.

Mr Kumar, in his petition, said if Delhi Police does not gear up its security network, there will be more such incidents in future.

Citing the recent bomb blasts in the Capital and other incidents, the petitioner said all this has happened due to the inefficency of Delhi police.

There are thousands of workers, who commute late at night and return home in the wee hours. The police should device some mechanism to ensure their safety round the clock, the petitioner said.

The petition will come up for hearing next week.
