The Lt. Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal held a crime review meeting with the Delhi Police officers in his office today.
According to the LG office, the focus of the meeting was on total separation of investigation from the law & order operations. He expected the police to achieve investigation targets in a time-bound manner.
Further, Baijal directed expeditious investigation in Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) cases. He also directed for periodical analysis of conviction rates.
Kejriwal sat on a dharna in front of LG office and claimed that LG (who is controlled by BJP) is not approving the CCTV proposal which is supposed to ensure safety of people – particularly women – of Delhi.
