Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Dharmendra Kumar said protestors voicing concern over the incident should avoid violence and maintain peace.
"Some hooligans are trying to turn the agitation violent by hijacking public sentiments. Public must separate themselves from these people. We are not against peaceful protest," he said.
The officer said that to find out lapses in the gang-rape case, a judicial commission committee will be created under the supervision of the chief justice of India.
"A retired Supreme Court judge will look into the Delhi gang-rape victim's case," Dharmendra Kumar said.
