Home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had announced the setting up of the commission on Saturday following the protests over the 23-year-old’s gangrape.
“If Kumar does not resign, the central government should give him his marching orders for sheer insensitivity and incompetence, evident from the continuing behaviour of the police towards peaceful protesters,” said the former National Human Rights Commission chairman.
Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit, who drove down to Shinde’s house with her cabinet colleagues on Sunday, said the government could not gain people’s confidence as long as “senior officers don’t take responsibility”.
Dikshit also sought cuts in VIP security if necessary, to put adequate police personnel on the roads. "Our plea was to have everything done by tomorrow," she said.
Justice Verma will also look into the gangrape and suggest preventive measures for the future. Former high court chief justice Leila Seth and former solicitor general Gopal Subramanium are other two members of the panel, which is expected to submit its report within a month.
