Gang-rape case: Delhi Police Chief rules out resignation
New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar on Sunday night ruled out his resignation over the horrific gang-rape incident here, saying he is not a "quitter".
"I don`t believe in quitting. I am not a quitter," Kumar told a TV channel.
Kumar made the remark amid demands during the protests by students and the youth in the Capital that he resign owning moral responsibility for alleged lapses by police that led to the gang-rape of the 23-year-old physiotherapy student in a moving bus last Sunday night.
Kumar said he will continue in his job as long as he is asked to.
Asked whether he had any regret for the police action to deal with the protesters at India Gate on Sunday, Kumar said every situation can be handled better.
"Maybe there were some lapses here and there. But by and large the situation warranted this kind of action," he added. Police had to resort to lathicharge and use of teargas and water cannons to disperse the protesters after the protests turned violent.
