Gang-rape: Delhi Police Commissioner meets Shinde

Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar on Wednesday had a meeting in the wake of the brutal gang-rape of a girl in Delhi during which it was decided that a drive will be launched to ensure removal of tinted glasses and curtains from buses.

It was also decided that the mobile number and licence number of drivers will be displayed in bold on buses, sources said.

The meeting comes a day after Congress president Sonia Gandhi shot off strong-worded letters to Home Minister Shinde and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, saying it was a “matter of shame” that such incidents happen with painful regularity.

The girl was raped by six men in a moving bus, which had tinted glass and curtains on it on Sunday night.

“Bus owners will be held liable for parking buses. Practise of drivers parking bus at their place will be stopped,” a senior official said.

Police has also been asked to get all details about private bus drivers, who are on contract with schools.

Meanwhile, there were protests against the incident at Police Headquarters and Jantar Mantar.

The girl continues to be in critical state, doctors said.
