Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday hit out at Delhi Police over the murder of a 21-year-old woman in Burari, saying the force should “focus” on ensuring security of people rather than “harassing” AAP legislators.

The woman was brutally stabbed to death in broad daylight by her 34-year-old stalker, who attacked her nearly 22 times this morning as passersby looked on.

“Shocking incident in Delhi of stabbing of 21-yr old woman. Delhi Police needs to focus on citizen’s security than harassing AAP MLAs (sic),” Sisodia tweeted.

At least 11 AAP MLAs have been arrested by the Delhi Police since the party came to power in the national capital in February last year.

In July, Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan was arrested after a woman alleged that a vehicle he was sitting in tried to mow her down. Deoli MLA Prakash Jarwal was arrested on charges of misbehaving with a woman the same month.

Another party MLA Dinesh Mohaniya was arrested in June on charges of molestation and sexual harassment amid high drama when he was addressing a press conference.

    Delhi Police (Modi Police) is waste of tax-payers money. It should be declared Sanghi or BJP Police which is proving rst police in the w country. Hope next Government at centre will dismantle Delhi police and replace it with efficient and accountable police for Delhi which serve the people instead of BJP kind of Party.

        And he needs to stop taking political mileage out of a poor girl's murder. Barely any sympathy for her and her loved ones, barely any outrage at the murderer. He's just focused on his own party's gain from the situation!!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;And not even one word about his own MLA's misbehavior with women.

          t is really astonishing to note that the persby are just standing and watching instead of catch hold of him and to prevent him from hitting the women and can't they overpower him with 4 or 5 people surrounding him and I do agree it is easy to say but my anguish is save her from the 22 attacks done by the murderer !!!
