Rare praise came Delhi Police's way on Saturday with NCW chairperson Girija Vyas lauding its efforts in curbing the crime rate in the national capital.

"Delhi Police has made efforts in the last one year to bring the crime rate down. I hope they keep up the good work," Vyas told reporters in New Delhi.

She noted that police was showing more promptness in registering FIRs in cases of crime against women.

Vyas also appreciated the force for conducting training in self-defence for women.

"The police in other states could learn from Delhi Police and take steps to prevent crimes against women," she said.

Delhi Police Commissioner KK Paul recently said the incidence of rape in the national capital had gone down by 15 per cent this year.

The Commission, meanwhile, has expressed concern over the report of the National Crime Bureau (NCB), saying there is not much change between 2004 and 2005 in the rate of crime against women.
