Former IPS officer Kiran Bedi, reacting to the horrific Kanjhawala death in which a 20-year-old girl was hit and dragged by a car for 12 kms, made important observations regarding lapses in the case.
What did Bedi say?
"3 things emerge from this incident. The first is the delay in the response system of the police. Second, there is no fear of law among the people and third, there is no integration of police with civic agencies. Who will inform whom if there is no light on the road?," Kiran Bedi was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Bedi's observations concur with facts of the case
Bedi's observations are in line with the questions raised by people after the facts related to the case have emerged in the aftermath of the victim's death. An eye-witness in this case has reportedly claimed that he tried to seek help from police in a PCR van, but the cops were not in senses and showed no interest in taking action. Making a serious allegation against the police, he said that they did not swing into action until 5 am.
The horrifying pictures and visuals that have come to fore also concur Bedi's second observation about lack of fear of law. The victim, after being hit by the car, was reportedly dragged by the car for 12 kms, an act so cruel that it has shaken the entire country.
