No safety in Capital: SC
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Jan 11: Observing there is no safety in the Capital, the Supreme Court today said it must be "restored" so that women can live with honour and dignity since incidents like the Delhi gangrape are being "repeated".
"There is no safety in the city and it has to come back," a bench of justices K S Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra said while pointing out that the incident of gangrape of a 23-year-old girl on December 16 was not an isolated one and that it is being "repeated" in the Capital.
The apex court said it is concerned about providing safe environment for women so that they can live with dignity.
"We are more concerned about safe environment where women can work with honour and dignity and that must be restored," the bench said, while issuing notice to the Centre, the NCT government and the National Commission for Women asking them to file their response within two weeks.
