New Delhi: Crime against women are a
"cause for concern" and incidents like the broad daylight
murder of a girl outside her college in the city are "sad and
shameful", Prime Minister Manmohan Singh`s wife Gursharan Kaur
said on Tuesday.
"Crimes against women and atrocities on women are a
cause for concern. Wrong things are happening. These will have
to be stopped," she told reporters on the sidelines of a
function marking the international women`s day.

She was asked about the killing of a 21-year-old
second-year degree student who was shot dead by an
unidentified person near her college in south Delhi today.
Police are suspecting that a stalker was behind the incident.
"This is a sad and shameful incident. Such incidents
should be condemned and whosoever have done it should be
punished. I hope that man will be captured and action taken
against him," Kaur said.
