New Delhi, Feb 6 (PTI) A day after a man brutally assaulted a young girl who resisted rape attempt, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today targeted Delhi Police once again, saying women do not feel safe here and "fears have risen" following the incident. "Women don't feel safe in Delhi. There is no feeling of security. What had happened yesterday in Lajpat Nagar is shocking. Fears have risen after the incident," Dikshit said when asked to comment on the incident. In yet another shocking incident, an electrician allegedly assaulted a young girl brutally in South Delhi's Lajpat Nagar by shoving an iron rod into her throat when she resisted his attempt to rape her. The girl, a college student, was alone at home when Anil Kumar, 26, had forced his way into the house and tried to rape her. Police arrested the man on charges of attempt to murder and rape while the girl is admitted to a private hospital where her condition was stated to be critical. The incident came less then two months after the December 16 gangrape of a 23-year-old which had triggred massive public outrage across the country. Dikshit said her government would do everything possible to address safety concerns of women. A number of steps have already been taken in this regard, she said. "When we talk about security, we know police is there. But there is no satisfaction about security which should be there," the Chief Minister said. "My government will do everything possible to provide a conducive atmosphere for women in the city," she added. Dikshit had been critical of functioning of Delhi Police and demanded the resignation of Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar in the wake of the gang-rape incident. PTI MPB PAL
