Will make Delhi a safer place with better policing: Home Secretary

New Delhi: In the wake of the gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedical student in a moving bus in the national capital and nationwide protests over it, the government on Friday assured that Delhi would now be a safer place where both men and women would be able to move freely anywhere at any point of time.

Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, Union Home Secretary RK Singh assured that the policing in the national capital would be stepped up and made better. "The kind of policing we will have, we will ensure that everyone, men or women, can move freely in any part of Delhi in both day and night," he said.

Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar, who addressed mediapersons alongwith the Union Home Secretary, said that the patrolling in the city had already been intensified. "We have been going for plain cloth patrolling...now we have intensified the patrolling," said the police chief.

Both Singh and Kumar assured that the transport system in the city would also be made better with installation of GPS in buses and autos.
