Its just the start of the year to make comments and moreover there is going to be a new Police commissioner Mr Verma who replaces B.S.Bassi – the achievement was efficiency of the Odd / Even scheme implementation where the Traffic police under Muktesh Chander did good job and didn’t let falter into chaos .
the crime situation has become bad , how are these gangs operating with such impunity and one hears of these shoot outs in south delhi , the cases of petty crimes which are not even reported have seen a big increase though complaints are being registered , conviction is low , the other aspect is how is organised crime flourishing in Delhi with such ease
the recent uzbek murder cases bought some spot light on sex slavery in the city with a lot of people taking a cut from it , then there are betting rackets drug rackets and money laundering which hardly comes light , the biggest being the property mafia , do you mean to tell police is unware of all this .
crime is still a major concern as it has according to the stats put, increased by a 100% in Delhi – reasons ease of filing FIR ‘s now .
Utter lawlessness in Gurgaon and one is talking from personal experience and many people one has talked to , all say there is just no security in Gurgaon , people are drinking out in the open ,inside colonies , creating nuisance and the worst is there so much talk of women safety these very goons right under the nose of the police are harassing women playing loud vulgar suggestive music and passing lewd comments and no one is doing anything about it the cops say you have to complain only then they might take action depending on the circumstances wether the goon is connected or not and this happening in upscale colonies with expensive houses and yet the security level is on this level where criminal roam free and not only that no one can do anything about it .
Its not good sign for law and order situation in the city when police personnel are getting shot /killed and are being assaulted ,these incidents are not some stray incidents but have been taking place on a regular basis for the past few months .
On Diwali day there were many cases of violence and many were related to bursting of crackers ,why can’t there be a zoning law for bursting crackers ? they should be burst in a open space away from residential areas and the time limit should be strictly enforced, simple steps will ensure a better celebration of the festival instead it lapsing into some nightmare for people.

Two incidents one these so called people creating a ruckus with their whole gang of so called fake PSOs and the other case of a brutal stabbing caught on CCTV in broad daylight highlights the level of crime in the city , criminals have a free run in most areas and people live under fear and terror of such criminals and then there are these so called well connected criminals who now roam around with criminals dressed up as some sort of PSO s who are armed and creating terror in and around Delhi on behalf of these people .
how can this nonsense be allowed to go on in this day and age one has lived in Delhi and come across such situations on regular basis and it seems nothing has changed .
I can understand police is under political pressure in some cases but in this age of such close media scrutiny anyone who is giving patronage to such criminals that politician or persons goes down with them and moreover the judiciary is very pro active so incase there is any lapse the police will be or is hauled up and moreover civil society is very vigilant so the police should do its job with full sincerity and without fear and the police knows who these criminals are and if they want can bring down crime dramatically .

Crime graph in the Capital saw a steep hike with a staggering 20,000 more criminal cases being registered in 2013 vis-à-vis the previous year.
Almost 40 per cent hike in the crime rate was due to crimes against women, including rapes and molestation. These offences rose by an alarming 129 per cent and 412 per cent respectively.
According to annual data of the Delhi Police, total number of cases registered rose from 51,479 in 2012 to 73,958 cases in 2013, marking an increase of 43.67 per cent. About 1559 cases of rape were registered in 2013 as against 680 in 2012, a hike of 129.26 per cent. As many as 3,347 cases of molestation were also reported in the past year as against 653 in 2013, a rise of 412.56 per cent.
The number of street crimes also registered a sharp climb with incidents of chain snatching going up by 142.09 per cent. In 2013, 3,319 cases of snatching were registered in Delhi as against 1,371 in 2012.
But, Delhi Police Commissioner Bhim Sain Bassi attributed the rise in the crime statistics to the Delhi Police’s policy of registration of all cases against women.
“The numbers do not matter to me so much. Crime statistics are just statistics, if we manipulate them, it will be injustice to the victims of crime. Our intention here is clear. Registration is as per the crime on the street. This is probably why you are seeing phenomenal increases in some heads,” Mr. Bassi said.
