New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar, who had drawn Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's ire in the aftermath of the 16 December gangrape incident, apprised her about the steps being taken by the force to improve safety of women in the city.
Sources said Kumar met Dikshit and explained her the various measures taken by Delhi Police to instill confidence among women towards the force. They said Dikshit underlined the need for more efforts by the police to check crime against women and improve the overall law and order situation in the city.
Dikshit had been critical of functioning of Delhi Police and demanded the resignation of Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar in the wake of the gangrape incident.
Last week Dikshit had targeted police once again after a man brutally assaulted a young girl in Lajpat Nagar, saying women do not feel safe here in the national capital.
Delhi government had last month sent a letter to Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde accusing the police of "completely deviating" from its core duties and "trivialising" the issue of safety of women. The Delhi Police functions under Home Ministry and reports to Lt Governor Tejendra Khanna.
In the meeting, Dikshit also stressed on the need to check the vehicles coming from neighbouring cities to Delhi.
