Delhi Police chief refutes CM`s charges
New Delhi: Under attack from Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar on Wednesday wrote to the Home Ministry rebutting charges that police had interfered when a magistrate was recording the statement of Delhi gang-rape victim.
In his letter, Kumar refuted the allegation that police had forced a questionnaire on the Sub Divisional Magistrate who recorded the statement of the rape victim and had refused its videography.
The Police Commissioner said it was police which had insisted that the statement of the girl be recorded as her condition was getting worse with every passing day.
Kumar also said investigation was the job of the police and it was doing its best to get justice to the victim.
Earlier, Dikshit shot off a letter to Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde citing a communication to her by Deputy Commissioner (East) B M Mishra that SDM Usha Chaturvedi had complained that senior police officials` interfered while she was recording the statement of the victim.
Meanwhile, the Home Ministry today said it has decided to take "immediate appropriate action" on the controversy.
"The Home Ministry has received Delhi Chief Minister`s complaint letter as well as a letter from the Police Commissioner refuting the charges. The Ministry has taken note of the two letters and decided to take immediate appropriate action," an official said without elaborating.
