The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) Saturday issued a notice to Delhi Police and sought an inquiry into the role of police officers attached to the Anand Parbat police station. The officers had allegedly pressurised a victim of molestation and her friend, who had intervened to protect her from the accused, to withdraw their complaint.

In a letter to Police Commissioner Alok Verma, DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal said, “The role of the local police seems to be under question. The victim, in her written complaint to the Commission, has said her FIR was registered only upon the intervention of the concerned DCP of the district. She has also complained of being pressurised by the local police and the family members of the accused to withdraw the case. The complainant continues till date to live in an atmosphere of insecurity as three of the accused are yet to be arrested.”

    If proven guilty, all these cops should be immediately fired from their jobs.lt;br/gt;More women only police stations are required to deal with crimes against women immediately before the guilty party harms anyone else....and of course government schools need major reforms ...or atleast some kind of etiquette courses should be given in villages...people migrating from villages to urban areas should be taught the lifestyle differences beforehand (I am making an umption here that in most of the cases, guilty party is either living in rural areas or has recently migrated from there) lt;br/gt;your thoughts?
