New Delhi, Dec 17 (CMC) A string of crimes against women has again highlighted the fact that women are not safe in Congress' Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit-led Delhi - the latest being yesterday night's attack on a student. Which indicates that women should clearly not venture out of their house after dusk.

In a shocking incident, a 23-year-old para-medical student travelling in a bus along with her male friend was allegedly gang-raped by four men inside the moving vehicle and they were thrown out after being brutally assaulted with an iron rod.

The victim, who hails from Uttarakhand and pursues the course in the hill state, is in a critical condition at the Safdarjung Hospital where she was rushed along with her friend late last night after the incident which sparked outrage.

Both the girl and her male friend, who had boarded the chartered bus with tinted glass windows from Munirka in south Delhi around 9.45 PM to Palam, were thrashed badly with an iron rod by the men after the two resisted before they were dumped on the road side near Mahipalpur flyover, police said today.

Police have identified four people, who allegedly raped the girl, and have already prepared sketches of two of them.

Police also released CCTV footage of the suspected bus with an appeal to the public to help them locate the vehicle.

Chhaya Sharma, Deputy Commissioner of Police, South, told reporters, that both the girl and boy had "put up a fight" with the men. The bus had tinted glass and was not in regular commercial service.
Describing the incident as 'shocking', Delhi Women and Child Development Minister Kiran Walia said that government would seriously work on installing CCTV cameras inside buses.

"This is shocking incident. I hope that the guilty are punished for the heinous crime," she said.

Accusing the government of handling the law and order matter "carelessly", BJP spokesperson Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said such incidents take place regularly but they are neither taken seriously by the Home Ministry nor by the police.

"This incident will be replaced with another incident after few days. I believe that Delhi's law and order and security issues are handled carelessly by the government," Naqvi said.

Senior BJP leader V.K. Malhotra on his part lashed out at the Congress Government over the untoward incident, and questioned as to why no action has been initiated so far.

"Delhi has once again been shamed. It is being repeatedly said now that Delhi has become the rape capital. When we used to talk about providing safety to the feminine gender, then it was said that women here are safe," said Malhotra.

"Sheila Dikshit is the Chief Minister, Sonia Gandhi is there in the Centre, Krishna Tirath is a Minister, there is National Commission, but despite all these cases of rape against the women are on the rise in Delhi. Nothing can be more ashamed than a case that the rape has been done in a moving bus. Why was action not initiated?" he asked.
