The Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday sharpened its attack on the city’s police force over the brutal murder of a teenager in Anand Parbat area.
“In the past few weeks, several incidents of crimes against women have been reported, most of them heinous. The news of a girl being stabbed to death by her molesters while police refused to lodge a complaint is shocking and it has brought to light the inefficiency and indifference of the police,” said AAP Delhi unit chief Dilip Pandey.
He also accused the central government of being intent on “fudging numbers” instead of bringing down the crime rate.
