With the Congress and the BJP clamouring for immediate action on the death of an 18-year-old student from Arunachal Pradesh, the Delhi government recommended that a magisterial inquiry be ordered by the Lieutenant-Governor.
Condemning the incident, in which Nido Taniam was allegedly beaten to death, Chief Minister Kejriwal said his government had a “zero-tolerance policy” towards such incidents.
He also continued in his criticism of the Delhi Police, raising questions regarding the functioning of law enforcement agencies.
“The loss of an innocent life raises serious questions about the functioning of the law enforcement agencies and it needs to be probed how the alleged beating of the student took place in full public view,” Kejriwal said.
The CM has also asked Urban Development Minister Manish Sisodia to compile a detailed report on the incident and submit it to the chief minister’s office.

Members of the BJP and the Congress criticised Kejriwal for pushing the blame on the Delhi Police. “It’s time for Arvind Kejriwal to stop blaming police. It’s time for action and not merely making tall promises.
He should analyse the problems. This is inhuman… and can’t be tolerated. He should give a strong and clear message to the society,” Harsh Vardhan, leader of Opposition, said.
Echoing similar views, Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely said, “Arvind Kejriwal, as the chief minister of Delhi, should take concrete steps to ensure that such an incident doesn’t take place again. It is not enough to blame police.
One of the things that Arvind Kejriwal had promised in his manifesto was ensuring that Delhi was safe for all. It is high time that he comes through on that promise.
