New Delhi: The Security Commission for Delhi on Thursday issued direction to Delhi Police to show ‘zero tolerance’ towards crime against women and adopt high importance toward safety and security of women in the national capital.

During the meeting, the commission also directed the state police to register complaints in verbatim as told by the victim or their family. “FIR on all crime against women will be recorded and registered as it is stated by the complainant,’’ said Tejendra Khanna.

The meeting held under the chairmanship of Lieutenant-Governor Tejendra Khanna at Raj Niwas was attended among others by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Leader of Opposition in Assembly VK Malhotra and Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar.

Tejendra Khanna said directions have been issued to all the police personnel to show respect towards women including installing 'women helpdesks' in all the police stations.

Now onwards, women can lodge their complaints directly with Special Commissioner of Police Sudhir Yadav.

It was also conveyed that all drivers/conductors/cleaners of public vehicles will be checked, verified and cleared by the police.

These measures have been taken in the wake of December 16 gang-rape-murder case in which a 23-year old paramedical student was gang raped and assaulted to death by a group of six men. The following days witnessed a massive protest throughout the country for safety and security of women in the public domain.

DEATH FOR ALL: Damini’s father wants death sentence for all the six accused

As the Delhi gang rape case was transferred to a fast-track court in Delhi on Thursday, the father of the 23-year old victim wants the culprits to be given death sentence. He is also hopeful of harsh punishment to the juvenile also.

The father of the Delhi gang-rape victim said his family is still in a state of shock over their loss, but expressed satisfaction with the positive change in attitude towards such incidents in the country.

Some changes have been noticed within a month of the incident. Earlier rape cases were hushed up, but now police and other officials have shown sensitivity towards such incidents. Media was also highlighting such incidents, he said.

"Often reports were not lodged in rape cases previously, but now action is being taken against criminal elements...," he said on Thursday.

He said his family was happy with the government's decision to transfer his daughter's case to a fast-track court as this would facilitate hearing on a daily basis.

The family, who had come to their village to perform rituals, returned to Delhi.

The 23-year-old girl was gang-raped and assaulted by six men in a moving bus on December 16. She later passed away in a Singapore hospital on December 29.
