Home Ministry speaks on improving law and order
The Home Ministry said that action should also be taken to improve the law and order situation in the national capital so that people, especially women and children, can live in a fear-free environment. In this regard, a thorough investigation will be done whether PCR van units should be linked with the district police for better coordination. The PCR van was separated from the district police a few years ago. In outer Delhi, those areas where there are few or no CCTV cameras and areas where there are no street lights will be properly investigated by the police.
Scooty was hit by a car
The police will coordinate with civic agencies to install CCTV cameras and street lights in such areas.

In this case, along with five people in the car, many of their associates have been arrested.
