Delhi Commission for Women Chairperson Barkha Shukla Singh on Monday called for stringent laws and effective policing to ensure that that the national capital becomes a safe place for all, in particular the feminine gender.

Singh, who was commenting on last evening's incident where a young girl was brutally attacked and shot at in a busy Sarai Kale Khan area of South Delhi, said this is very unfortunate that criminals don't have fear of law in their minds.

"So, I would request that there should be very strict laws and the police should act as very competent (so) that the criminals can know there is a law," she added.

A 25-year-old woman was shot dead in public view by an allegedly drunk man after a protracted and loud argument at the crowded Sarai Kale Khan bus terminus yesterday.

Delhi Police, which had come under sharp criticism in the wake of the brutal assault and gang-rape of a medical student in a moving bus in December last year, swung into action immediately and arrested the accused.

This incident, however, once again brings to notice the failing law and order situation in the national capital. (ANI)
