New DelhI: Volunteers of AAP youth wing protested outside the Delhi police Headquarters today against their inaction in the Anand Parbat murder case where a teenage girl was stabbed to death.
The police used water cannons to disperse the crowd. Meanwhile, Commissioner Bassi has offered to meet the protesters.
Meenakshi, 19 was allegedly killed on Thursday by two brothers living in her neighbourhood for protesting their verbal abuse.
She was with her neighbour, returning home with groceries from a market at Punjabi Basti colony in Anand Parbat, when the accused, Jai Prakash, 22, blocked her way and passed a lewd remark.
Father of the victim alleged that his daughter was subjected to "abuse and vulgar comments" by the accused. The matter was brought to the notice of police but no proper action was taken, he said, as per PTI.
Witnesses said Meenakshi protested instantly. Her police complaint in 2013 had led to Prakash and his mother Shashi Bala being taken into preventive custody. Prakash's family had since been pressuring her to withdraw the complaint.
Meanwhile, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has asked the Delhi Police commissioner BS Bassi to meet him on Monday to discuss law and order situation in the national capital.
