I’m no Dikshit, won’t let Modi sleep: Kejriwal

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the grisly rapes of two minors here, saying he won’t let Modi sleep peacefully over the rising crime in the capital.

“I am no Sheila Dikshit. I won’t let even PM (Modi) sleep peacefully,” Kejriwal told reporters after meeting Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung, referring to the former Delhi chief minister.

“Why didn’t he (Modi) visit the families of rape victims when he can go abroad?” the Aam Aadmi Party leader asked.

The remarks came after a toddler and a five-year-old child were raped in two separate incidents here. Kejriwal announced a special meeting on Monday of the cabinet over women safety.

Dikshit, who ruled Delhi for 15 years before being defeated by Kejriwal, faced public wrath over the gang-rape and death of a 23-year-old woman here in 2012.

She had then pleaded helplessness citing that Delhi Police was not under her control — an issue which continues to be a sore point between Delhi’s AAP government and the central government.

Kejriwal said Delhi Police, which reports to the union home ministry, had become ineffective because of which there was no fear among criminals.

“Give Delhi Police to us for a year and see how we fix it. And if you can’t hand over the charge of entire Delhi Police, let us handle it in east Delhi,” the chief minister said.

“If law and order does not improve (in that period), take it back from us,” he added.

Pretending to be “Instagram famous”, a 25-year-old Florida man allegedly lured a Texas-based minor girl only to repeatedly sexually assault and rape her for days.

Richard Brown, who already faces six felony counts of child sexual abuse, got in touch with the 17-year-old girl on Instagram and claimed to be a 19-year-old, rich and “Instagram famous”, the media reported.

He had reportedly booked an Uber costing over $800 to get the girl from her home in Texas to his parent’s home in Orlando and kept her trapped for three days.

The girl however managed to escape and reported to the local authorities while keeping her mother informed via Snapchat.

“The girl told authorities that she quickly realised Brown wasn’t who he claimed to be, but that he pressured her into staying with him for three nights as he had paid for her journey,” the report said.
