After a series of crimes rocked the national capital in the past few weeks,
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written to Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena seeking a discussion with him.
Delhi saw four murders in just one week amid the “alarming” spurt in crimes in the national capital.
In the letter dated June 19, he proposed a meeting of the Delhi Cabinet with the LG for a “meaningful discussion” on the issue.
“Seriousness of the situation can be gauged from a heart rending fact that four murders have taken place during last 24 hours in different parts of Delhi,” read the letter.
Kejriwal also stressed on the need to increase police patrolling, especially during night hours, and urgent engagement with the residents of Delhi on the matter.
“I propose a meeting of my cabinet colleagues with your goodself for a meaningful discussion on this important issue,” he added.
While a young students was stabbed to death in Delhi University’s Aryabhatta College, two women were shot dead over monetary issues in Ambedkar Basti.
Few weeks ago, a teen was publicly stabbed and bludgeoned to death on camera at Shahbad Dairy.
Meanwhile, the city has seen no decline in cases of sexual assault and harassment as reports of rapes make headlines every week.
