A Delhi Court came down heavily on Police following the murder of a woman allegedly by her husband, despite Court-ordered protection.

Additional Sessions Judge Anuj Aggarwal passed the order in the case observing that the Delhi Police moto of Shanti, Sewa and Nyay has been believed in the case.

The Court ordered, “It appears that the Order dated 16.07.2021 (by this court) whereby concerned SHO was directed to ensure proper safety and security of the complainant and her family members, was not diligently complied with. The indolence on part of the Authorities had led to a loss of precious human life.”

The Court ordered that the matter be brought to the attention of the Police Commissioner with a request to look into the matter personally and fix the responsibility of the erring Police Official.

The Court had directed the SHO to ensure protection to the family. Following this order, the Court had also cancelled the bail granted to Nayak on July 31.

The Court had taken this decision on the basis of a video recording featuring Nayak, in which he said, “This is what we call, Khalnayak. If you don’t withdraw the case against me, then I will cut your mother and brother into pieces and throw them on your lap.”
