HC Strived In 2013 To Make Delhi A Safer Place For Women

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court in 2013 dealt with various cases like row over CAG's appointment, funding of Aam Aadmi Party and the I-T department's tax demand of Rs 21,153 crore from Nokia and passed a slew of orders to make Delhi a safer place for women.

Taking suo-motu cognisance of the ordeal of the December 16, 2012 gangrape victim, the court not only put Delhi Police to task for its lapses but ordered hospitals, including private ones, not to deny treatment to victims of criminal offences, especially rape victims.

Various long-overdue steps, including increase in number of PCR vans for enhanced night vigil, probe against erring policemen for their failure to detect perpetrators of gangrape, fast track courts for rape trials and compensation for the victims, were taken in pursuance of the court orders.
