‘Snatchers held because of CCTV cameras’

A day after Damyanti Vikas Modi from Surat, who claims to be Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s niece, was targeted by snatchers in north Delhi’s Civil Lines, AAP hit out at the BJP saying that it had failed to maintain law and order in the Capital.

AAP said the police could identify the snatchers because of the CCTVs installed across the city by the government.

“Today, the criminals, who robbed Mr. Modi’s niece, have been identified and nabbed because of these cameras,” said AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh.

The party said strong steps need to be taken to stop crime in the Capital. Mr. Singh on Sunday alleged that the Centre, which is responsible for ending crime in Delhi, is indulging in “dirty politics” to hide its failure by trying to spoil the name of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at every step.

‘A matter of concern’

Mr. Singh added: “The law and order situation in Delhi is deteriorating rapidly. This is a matter of concern. The Chief Minister had written a letter to the Centre, appealing them to take effective steps. Recently, nine murders took place in 24 hours, there have been thousands of rape and sexual harassment cases, and multiple snatching cases reported. And now, the niece of the Prime Minister of the country has been robbed by miscreants.”

“Regardless of who committed the crime, irrespective of religion or caste, whether it was an infiltrator or a local, they need to catch the perpetrators and punish them. The BJP should not hide its failure,” Mr. Singh said.

He said if the police were under Mr. Kejriwal today then Delhi’s law and order would not have been in such a poor state.
