New Delhi, Dec 24 (PTI) Under severe attack for deteriorating law and order situation in the city, Government today suspended two Assistant Commissioners of Delhi Police and sought explanation from two Deputy Commissioners holding them responsible failing to prevent the gangrape of a 23-year-old girl which triggered violent protests here. Announcing the action against the police officials, Lt Governor Tejendra Khanna declared a series of steps to enhance security for women which include appointment of a Special Police Commissioner to receive complaints of misconduct violence and harassment of women. At a press conference here, Khanna said two ACPs Mohan Singh Dabas of Traffic wing and Yad Ram who is in-charge of PCR have been suspended as they "failed" to prevent the crime. "Prima facie both the officials were found guilty of failure to prevent the incident," said Khanna, who returned from US last night. Khanna said he has instructed Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar to seek explanation from DCP (Traffic) Prem Nath and DCP (PCR) Satbir Kataria on why disciplinary action would not be taken against them. After a two-and-a half hour meeting with representatives of various women's groups, Khanna said it would be mandatory for the duty officer of all police stations to register the complaint of the woman if she approached them. The Lt Governor said orders have been issued to ensure immediate registration of complaints filed by any woman regarding harassment, assault, domestic violence and appropriate action would be taken if any of the 80,000-strong Delhi Police personnel fail to obey the direction. "Police will adopt zero tolerance approach towards complaint by women," he said. MORE PTI MPB RT
