New Delhi: The Delhi assembly on Monday adopted a resolution to set up a three-member panel to probe the alleged police inaction in cases of crime against women.
The moves comes in the wake of the brutal murder of a 19-year-old girl, Meenakshi, in broad daylight in Anand Parbat area of the city. The AAP government accused Delhi Police of “inaction” in the case.
The resolution was tabled by Delhi Women and Child Minister Sandeep Kumar. The commission of inquiry will be chaired by a retired judge.
The resolution will add to the acrimony between the Delhi Police and the AAP government of Delhi.
The Delhi Police and the Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd. (SECI) on Wednesday signed an MoU for setting up rooftop solar energy systems on police establishments in the capital.
Terming the Delhi Police as always in the forefront in adopting new technology and innovative practices in all spheres of its working, Commissioner of Police Amulya Patnaik thanked the New and Renewable Energy Sources Ministry in facilitating this MOU which will go a long way in making Delhi green.
He hoped that this project would be completed soon in a phased manner with active cooperation between the two agencies.
Lauding the initiative of Delhi Police in adopting this green initiative in sync with the vision of Central government, New and Renewable Energy Sources Secretary Anand Kumar said that solar energy is economical as well as environmental friendly.
He emphasized that this is a landmark beginning in the country’s capital where the premier police force has come forward to adopt solar power technology all across its establishments, which will not only reduce their electricity bill but also further the cause of ‘Clean Energy’ in the city.
