Speaking on the incident in Burari, where a woman was stabbed to death by an alleged stalker, DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal said, “There is no fear in the minds of the people. That is why a man has brutally attacked a woman… today on a busy street. This is shameful. I won’t point fingers at one agency. The reason is that there are no convictions. There is a need to improve accountability and resources of the Delhi police. We also need more courts in Delhi and improve our forensic laboratories.”

She added, “Delhi police had sought 66,000 police employees but they got 4,000. The Centre and the state also need to come together. Nothing will change in Delhi unless the society, the government, the Centre and the state come together to ensure safety of women.”
