NEW DELHI: A delegation of the Bharatiya Janata Party led by its Delhi unit president Harsh Vardhan met the Delhi Police Commissioner, K. K. Paul, on Saturday and expressed concern over the deteriorating law and order situation in the Capital and the feeling of insecurity currently prevailing among women and senior citizens.

Dr. Vardhan pointed out during the meeting that crimes against women and senior citizens, apart from snatchings, were on the rise and the police had failed to curb these problems.

He also said that while the police had failed to arrest the culprits behind the Mayapuri abduction-cum-gang-rape incident of July 20, eyewitnesses to the abduction were being unnecessarily detained.

The BJP leader also conveyed to Dr. Paul the pathetic conditions in which slum dwellers near the place where the incident occurred were living. The residents have been complaining that the anti-social elements were having a field day and there was little police protection.

Apart from Dr. Vardhan, the delegation comprised the Leader of the Opposition in the Delhi Assembly, Jagdish Mukhi, Mahila Morcha president Vishakha Shailani and others. The delegation also presented a memorandum to Dr. Paul demanding that the Delhi Police work with urgency towards alleviating the sense of insecurity currently gripping the Capital.

For his part, Dr. Paul assured the delegation that drastic changes in police functioning were in the offing and with implementation of new measures crimes like rape, dacoity and murder would come down.
