New Delhi: The AAP on Sunday raised the issue where a 19-year-old girl was stabbed to death in Anand Parbat last week while protesting vehemently against the breakdown of law and order in the city.

Two separate protests- at Jantar Mantar and outside the police headquarters were carried out by the party.
According to senior leaders the chief minister has asked the Delhi Police commissioner, B S Bassi to meet him on Monday while at the same time keeping a tab on the Delhi Police.

The protest outside the police headquarters was mostly led by the party’s youth and women’s wing and police had to retreat to water cannons to distribute the crowd. Subsequently, a candlelight protest led by party leaders Dilip Pandey, Saurabh Bhardwaj and Durgesh Pathak was organized at Jantar Mantar in the evening. While hitting at the negligence in the Anand Parbat case, the leaders referred to the police as “Modi Police.”

As the rift between AAP and the police widens, leaders stressed on reiterated on the fact that “police is under an organisation that has no accountability to the people of Delhi”.

“The party will drill in the point that either the Prime Minister or his cabinet take routine meetings and give time to law and order in Delhi, or it must be handed over to the Delhi government. One or the other has to happen,” a senior leader said.

Although many are doubting the Central government handing over the police to state government few are considering it important to “avoid a similarity” with the Congress’ “helplessness in curbing crime".

“Whenever a big crime incident is reported in the city, the Congress would blame it on the Centre and the Delhi Police. While the situation is the same for us, at this point, we must be seen as attempting to change that scenario and bring the police under the Delhi government,” said a leader. 

Prior to his meeting with the chief minister the Delhi Police Commissioner has said that the police was accountable towards the “system” instead of any individual.

“Police is always accountable towards the system and not to any individual. We are answerable to the government and through it to Parliament,” Bassi told reporters after meeting Lt Governor Najeeb Jung in Delhi.
