HC directs Delhi Police to file status report over increasing crime

Summary: The bench issued notice to the Centre, Lt Governor, Delhi government and the Delhi Police, and sought a status report from the Delhi government on how it meant to deal with the problem.

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed the police to file a status report on the proposed law to deal with the menace of snatching.

On the objection of the counsel for the Central Govt that the Courts can not frame law, the Delhi High Court repelling the contentions of the Counsel gave them 10 days time to come up with an explanation in the form of status report as to why in Delhi stringent laws in lines of Haryana and Maharashtra can not be enacted?

On the objection of the counsel of the Central Government that the court can not frame law over this issue, the Delhi High Court gave them 10 days to come up with an explanation in the form of status report as to why stringent laws can not be enacted in the national capital in lines of Haryana and Maharashtra. The petitioner informed HC that already Haryana has made inclusions in IPC to make it harsher against snatchings.

Manchanda told the court that chain snatchings in Delhi had recorded a six-fold increase.

The court said it does not like a change of counsel in any pending matter, as it also sought to know from the government the amounts they have disbursed to the three corporations. "On an average, there are 25 snatching cases every day in Delhi due to absence of effective laws and indifference of the police, which books the offenders under trivial provisions of theft instead of robbery or dacoity, even though weapons are used to commit such crimes", the petition said. The PIL also sought new sections to be added in the Criminal Law, on the lines of states like Haryana, Maharashtra and Punjab.

Manchanda told the court that Delhi parks had become hubs of such crime and criminal elements frequented such places due to lack of vigilance.
