Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday met the kin of the 51-year-old businessman
Druv Raj Tyagi, who was stabbed to death by his neighbours when he went to confront them for passing lewd comments and indecent gestures to his daughter.
The 27-year-old woman whose father was murdered by the accused persons for resisting lewd comments, met the Home Minister along with her mother and grandfather. They were accompanied by Union Minister Vijay Goel, rebel Aam Aadmi Party MLA Kapil Mishra and Janata Dal (United) leader KC Tyagi.
Her 19-year-old brother was stabbed repeatedly by the killers and is still battling for his life. “The family has no complaints with the police but I urged Rajnathji to ensure that the accused don’t go scot-free and a watertight case is made out against the accused,” he said.
Four of the accused have been caught but the family is alleging that the women were also involved and should be arrested. We said their role should also be ascertained,” said Goel.
Goyal said besides the Dhruv Tyagi, Rupesh Basoya, Ankit Saxena and Dr. Pankaj Narang are other cases where murders took place on the streets, and hence the police need to take strict action so
that no such incidents are repeated.
“It seems like the fear of the police has vanished and its credibility needs to be strengthened. The readiness that the police have shown in this case, the same should be shown in other general cases as well. The accused was already on bail in a murder case and there was no previous history of any dispute between the two families. It should be reviewed that why then such crimes are taking place in the city,” said Goel.
The Minister also said that one of the reasons behind the rise in crime in Delhi is that Rohingya Muslims from Bangladesh are living in large numbers.
Goel also said that while Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has all the time in the world to comment on every other national issue and issues of other States, this time he has chosen to remain silent to protect his vote bank.
In a letter submitted to the Home Minister, KC Tyagi has urged him to ensure that the dependents of the businessman, who was the sole bread-earner of the family, be given a job, a compensation of `50 lakh and security.
