Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday demanded strict action in the brutal murder of a 51-year-old businessman by group of boys in West Delhi’s Moti Nagar area.

The Delhi President of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Manoj Tiwari also expressed paid his condolence to the family and tweeted, “Sad, highly condemnable. Father protested, to uphold the dignity of his daughter, a brave son did his duty towards his family Goondaism and urban naxalism have no place in our society. We should all come together and condemn it. Culprits should be punished through fast track court,” he posted in his twitter handle.
The DCW chief said, “I am extremely shocked and perturbed by the gravity of offence committed against the businessman and his son”. “In the notice issued to Deputy Commissioner of Police (West), the women’s panel sought information whether any complaint of harassment, eve-teasing, molestation etc, was ever received against the accused in the past.”
The commission has also demanded the details of the FIR and whether the accused who allegedly misbehaved with the victim’s daughter were booked under appropriate sections of law.
DCW also sought the current status report on the investigation by May 17.
“A 52-year-old businessman was stabbed to death allegedly for objecting to lewd comments made by some boys on his daughter in West Delhi’s Moti Nagar area,” the police had said on Monday. The businessman’s family members were inconsolable that some of locals standing on the spot did not come to their rescue them and they also alleged that ‘some people even filmed the incident but did not come forward to rescue him from being stabbed,” they said.
