After the gang rape and the murder by four individuals of a young woman named Nirbhaya, which occurred in December 2012, the ‘’Delhi Human Development Report’’ (DHDR) of 2013 undoubtedly exposed the major public safety issues in Delhi, India. Since the past few years, the crime rates have escalated according to 95 % of the people involved in the survey.
The report was given to around 8 000 houses and families in the city. According to the study, the majority of the people find the issue of security in the city very frightening. Also, they believe that the safety measures provided by their government are far from acceptable. The feeling of danger is not only felt by the poor living in harsh conditions, but also by the rich and powerful people of Delhi.
The report also revealed that the major crimes the people are hearing about and are either scared of or have experienced are abduction of young children and kidnapping of young women. Most of these victims have either been murder or died in the streets after the crime was committed.
At this point, the government has no choice but to act upon this situation. The authorities will first have to reinstate the people’s faith in their justice system which will be a hard task to accomplish since the people find the justice department unsatisfying and unstable.
