The Delhi Lieutenant Governor Tejendra Khanna has come down hard on the Delhi Police and asked Police commissioner BK Gupta to
increase police presence on the roads to ensure that incidents like the Dhaula Kuan gangrape are not repeated.

Khanna, apparently unhappy with the notoriety that Delhi has earned due to the increasing number of crimes against women, is believed to have asked Gupta to make the city safer for women.

“The LG has also asked the police department to identify areas where women from Northeastern states live and increase number of police control rooms (PCR) vans in those areas. The LG has also asked the police commissioner to ensure that these PCR vans also have women officers,” said a senior officer in the LG office.

“The LG has asked the BPOs to ensure that women staff travelling in office cabs are dropped at the doorstep of their houses,” the officer said.
