Arvind Kejriwal Has A Question About Delhi Crime,  "9 Murders In 24 Hours" 

New Delhi: The chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal took to social media today to condemn "dangerous spurt" in crimes across the city. The post comes hours after an elderly couple and their domestic help were found murdered at their residence in Vasant Vihar.

Mr Kejriwal also said that the incident was among nine similar murders reported across the national capital in the last 24 hours.

"Delhi is witnessing a dangerous spurt in serious crimes. An elderly couple and their domestic help murdered in Vasant Vihar. Nine murders reported in last 24 hours across the city. Whose door should be knocked for safety & security of Delhiites?" he tweeted.


The Delhi Chief Minister's last tweet was an apparent jibe at the central government, which is responsible for law enforcement in the national capital. The AAP government, which has been demanding that the Delhi Police be brought under its control for a long time now, had even passed a resolution to this effect in the state assembly late last year. The Chief Minister had said back then that, "If the Delhi Police comes under the elected government of Delhi, it will start working for the good of the people."

In today's incident, the bodies of the elderly couple -- Vishnu Kumar (80) and Shishi Mathur (75) -- were found along with that of their 24-year-old domestic help, Khushboo Nautiyal, at their Vasant Vihar residence. According to the police, all three were found with their throats slit.

The incident came to light when neigbours alerted the police after seeing blood seeping out from under the door of their house. Deputy Commissioner of Police (South West) Devendra Arya said that police have ruled out robbery as the motive for the crime.

Yesterday evening, a middle-aged couple -- identified as Hari Ballabh (51) and Shanti Singh (47) -- were found stabbed to death at their residence in Dwarka's Mohan Garden area. Their daughter called the police after she returned home in the evening, only to see the two lying in a pool of blood.

According to news agency ANI, police have arrested a man -- identified as Vishal -- who they believe may have murdered the couple in order to get married to their daughter. He was taken into custody on the basis of call records on his mobile phone.
