Murder of Ram Lal Anand college student Radhika

New Delhi: Delhi Police on Wednesday released the sketch of the killer of Radhika Tanwar, the 22-year-old girl who was shot dead in broad daylight near her college yesterday. As per the police, there was only one assailant who appears to have been following her movement for long and that the crime may have been committed due to some kind of obsession. The killer is a youngster of average built, wheatish complexion, around 5.5 feet in height and was wearing a black T-shirt yesterday. But the police is not 100% certain about the description as, shockingly, there are no eyewitnesses.

Briefing the press about the ongoing investigation, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South Zone) HGS Dhaliwal said that the police are conducting through probe and that a number of teams are working closely on the case. “Assailant knew her movements; like the time she left her home for college and route she took to college. It is almost certain that he observed her keenly,” he said. With regards to the motive behind the killing, Dhaliwal chose to not air the exact details but he did say that there may be a “personal angle” which may be known to close friends or family members.

“We are in touch with them so that we could get any additional information,” he said, adding that inspite of their grief Radhika’s family has been bold and supportive and is cooperating with the police.

Radhika case: killer`s sketch released
The DCP said that Radhika was shot from close range from a .315 bore Country made pistol which sounds like cracker burst. The assailant is thought to have meticulously planned the crime and shot the foot over bridge to fire at her because the noisy surroundings help in muzzling the sound of the firing, and also because it would be easy for him to escape. Dhaliwal, however, expressed disappointment that not many who came forward to help the police. “Unfortunately there were many who witnessed the crime but all of them denied that they saw anything,” he said.

“Something cannot be undone but atleast those who have seen the crime should come forward so that we catch the criminal as soon as possible,” he added. The DCP also assured that the identity of those who help the police would be kept a secret. In his observations, which point towards to the insensitiveness of the society and the non-cooperativeness of the citizens, Dhaliwal said, “We do not recommend that citizens intervene during a crime especially when the criminal is armed. But any citizen must atleast take the victim to the hospital… because she (Radhika) kept lying there for minutes before the beat constable and another person took her to the hospital.” Radhika was taken to the Sadarjung Hospital but was pronounced brought dead.


Spurned ‘stalker’ shoots Delhi college girl. Assailant escapes from crowded area, students question claim of ‘large’ police presence. A 20-year-old student was shot dead this morning while walking to college in south Delhi, allegedly by a man who had been stalking her for four months and whom she had rebuffed on Valentine’s Day. No one in Shantiniketan near Dhaula Kuan, an upscale neighbourhood where six colleges are located, saw the man attack Radhika Tanwar just 200 metres from Ram Lal Anand College at 10.30am, police said. “The bullet hit Radhika in her back and she immediately collapsed near the ramp of the footbridge, bleeding from her abdomen. Some locals rushed her to the nearby Safdarjung Hospital on an autorickshaw where she was declared brought dead,” a senior police officer said. A college friend walking with Radhika on the footbridge ran after the assailant but he got away, a teacher said.

“His (the friend’s) name is Aditya and he is a student of our college. He tried to chase down the assailant but he managed to run away. Police are questioning Aditya to help draw a sketch of the attacker,” said Raj Kaw, an associate professor of Ram Lal Anand College, where Radhika was a second-year BA student. Kaw described Radhika as a good student.

The area was crowded but a senior police officer said they were yet to come across an eyewitness. “It’s strange nobody saw him shooting from behind. We have got hold of a person who claimed that he saw the assailant fleeing but could not see his face. Our officers are trying to find an eyewitness,” he said. A local trader said people did not want to come forward fearing police harassment. Sinta Sunny, a student of the nearby Jesus and Mary College who crossed the same footbridge at 9.30am, said: “Senior police officers always claim that a large number of cops are posted around the area as so many colleges are located here. But where were they today?”
“There are so many colleges nearby but police have not done anything despite rising crimes against women here. It’s so scary as hundreds of students use the footbridge every day to go to college,” she added. At Safdarjung Hospital, Radhika’s father cried inconsolably. “I do not know who killed my daughter. She had no enemies,” sobbed Rajender Singh, a property dealer.

Radhika’s friends told the police that a man who had been stalking her for months had proposed to her on Valentine’s Day. The second-year BA student turned him away, telling him to “mind his business”. “It was a cold-blooded murder and the assailant targeted the girl with a clear motive to kill her. The attacker appeared to be known to the victim and was stalking her for the past few months,” said H.G.S Dhaliwal, DCP south.

Younger brother Vipin said his sister “left home to go to college at 9.10am. She never disclosed to us that somebody was following her. We have lost her forever….” The family lives at Naraina, about 6km from Dhaula Kuan. Girija Vyas, the National Commission for Women chairperson, condemned the murder that coincided with the International Women’s Day. “Why are such incidents recurring?” she asked.

According to the latest National Crime Records Bureau report, Delhi is the most unsafe city for women in the country. A number of MPs raised the question of crime against women in Parliament on the occasion of women’s day today and said home minister P. Chidambaram should take the blame since Delhi police reports to him. Chidambaram accepted that crime against women was a serious issue but added that the number of incidents had declined over the past few months. A large number of girl students from Delhi University’s south campus, located not far from where Radhika was shot, blocked Ring Road today in protest against the lack of security for students.

In November last year, a Mizo girl working for a call centre was intercepted in Dhaula Kuan by four men who forced her into a mini-truck and raped her. In May 2005, a Delhi University student, also from Mizoram, was abducted and raped in a car. Since several colleges are located in the vicinity, hundreds of students from all over India live in and around Dhaula Kuan. She was crossing the road by the foot over bridge when the assailant fired at her from behind

In a shocking case of broad daylight murder, a second year student of Delhi University was shot dead near her college premises by a young man at Dhaula Kuan here on Tuesday. One person has been detained for questioning by the Delhi Police. Radhika Tanwar (22), a student of the Ram Lal Anand College located on the South Campus of the Delhi University, alighted from a bus on Ring Road around 10 a.m. and was crossing the road by the foot over bridge near Satya Niketan when the assailant fired at her from behind.

The victim, who was shot at from point blank range, collapsed on the pathway. Some of the passers-by initially thought that Radhika's mobile phone had exploded. They then noticed blood oozing from her back. In the melee, the killer fled from the spot. Seeing her collapse, Radhika's college mate Aditya Singh, who was walking ahead of her on the foot over bridge, rushed towards her. Constable Sanoj Kumar, who was manning a nearby police picket, also reached the spot on hearing the gunshot. They took her in an auto rickshaw to Safdarjung Hospital, where she was declared dead on arrival.

The police found Radhika's college identity card and a mobile phone in her possession. They called up her father Rajender Singh Tanwar, a resident of Naraina Village. “I was at my residence when I received a call that my daughter had been admitted to Safdarjung Hospital with a bullet injury. I informed my relatives and friends and we rushed to the hospital where we were told that she was dead,” he said. The victim's body was taken to the mortuary of the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences for post-mortem in the afternoon. It was later handed over to the family members for cremation.

A murder case has been registered at the Dhaula Kuan police station. While police have nearly ruled out robbery as a motive, they are trying to ascertain if Radhika was being harassed by someone. “We have checked records at the Dhaula Kuan and Naraina police stations and have not come across any complaint of harassment lodged by the victim,” said Joint Commissioner of Police (Southern Range) Amulya Patnaik.

Radhika's father said: “Why would anyone kill her? My daughter had no enemies. She never told us about any person harassing her. She usually took a bus to her college from near the Naraina vegetable market, but we would drop her sometimes. Two of her female classmates, who live in the same area, used to travel with her to the college,” said Mr. Tanwar.

However, Radhika had to travel alone on Tuesday morning as the other two girls did not turn up. The police suspect that the assailant followed her up to the foot over bridge and shot her dead from close range. “It may turn out to be a case of one-sided love affair, but we are also probing other possibilities at this stage. We are questioning the victim's friends and classmates in this regard. Statements of her family members will also be recorded,” said a police officer.

The police have got a sketchy description of the assailant from some eyewitnesses. “According to them, the killer was in his early 20s and of medium height. He was wearing a pair of jeans,” said the officer, adding that one person has been detained thus far. The police are also trying to find out if any of the closed-circuit television cameras installed near the scene of crime had captured the assailant. New Delhi, March 9 - A day after a 20-year-old Delhi University student was murdered in broad daylight, political leaders here raised the heat over the matter, reiterating that Delhi -- the capital of the country -- was unsafe for women.

'It is shocking that a girl has been shot in broad daylight. The rate of crime has increased but the conviction is going down. So the message going out is that you can do anything but you will not be punished. The home minister must look into the matter seriously,' Communist Party of India-Marxist leader Brinda Karat told reporters here Wednesday. 'This city is not safe for women,' she added.

In the Lok Sabha, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Shahnawaz Hussain raised a hue and cry over the matter. 'It's a matter of shame that Delhi chief minister (Sheila Dikshit) herself said that Delhi is an unsafe city for women. We want to know what is the government doing about it,' he said. Radhika Tanwar, the young victim, was a resident of Naraina area in west Delhi and was a student of Ram Lal Anand College, located in Shanti Niketan.

She was crossing a foot overbridge near Dhaula Kuan with her friends Tuesday morning when suddenly a man shot her from the back and disappeared into the crowd of students and office-goers. Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit met Radhika's parents to offer her condolences and assured them of justice.
'We have to create social awareness and the police also has to be more sensitive to fight crime against women,' Dikshit told reporters when asked about the grave issue of women's safety in the city. 'This atmosphere of being unsafe is very worrying. The civil society and the law enforcement agencies, we all should get together and make women feel that they are safe,' she added.


Crime against women on the rise in Delhi
The shooting of a second year college student, suspected to be committed by a stalker, in the Capital on Tuesday could be the latest in a growing number of passion crimes in the city, according to the Delhi Police. Police figures show that 15 per cent of the murders in the Capital - or around 83 cases - were crimes of passion. In most of these, the victims had been stalked because of unrequited love. "Usually, stalking follows the pattern of familiarity. We cannot generalise profiles but stalking is not completely random. The stalker is familiar with the victim," consultant psychologist Arpita Anand said.

"Stalkers are usually not confrontative and persist with small, bothersome things. It is more about harassment, about disrupting someone's mental balance. This could be done resorting to tactics such as constant messaging, following a person - anything that the stalker thinks will affect the person he or she is targeting," she added.

Police records reveal that the number of victims of these crimes have been around 80 each year, where men have resorted to violence against women when faced with frustration in matters related to the heart. The increasing number of these crimes has prompted the police to start an anti-stalking helpline and an anti-obscene call cell.

The police said they had received 22,486 calls in 2010 out of which action was taken on 21,837 complaints. In the past few months, the Capital has witnessed several murders or violence against women. On February 11, Neetu Solanki, a 29-year-old BPO employee, was murdered by her boyfriend who has since been absconding.

Bikers in the outer district of the Capital, especially the Mangolpuri area, have been attacking women with blades. The police had arrested two persons identified as Vishal (22) and Rohit (26) in December last year. During interrogation, the duo confessed that they wanted to teach women a lesson for spurning Vishal's advances.

"Vishal had earlier been rejected by a girl who spurned his advances. Vishal with the help of his friend Rohit started attacking women in the area due to frustration," a senior police official said. "Typically, stalkers are people who are not able to accept no for an answer. They have their own meaning attached to the behavioural patterns of others and how others should be responding to them," consulatant psychiatrist Samir Parekh said. Many spurned lovers these days are attacking women but these go unnoticed in the wake of the blade gangs working in outer Delhi.

A 28-year-old woman working at the Jaipur Golden Hospital was attacked on Saturday night by her husband in Mangolpuri. Her husband was allegedly upset that she had refused to live with him. "Stalkers have a whole different world in their mind and thus do not realise when they are crossing their limit in relationships. For them, this relationship is all that they involve themselves in but not because they don't have anything else to do. They immerse themselves so completely in one relationship that they cut out support systems and peer groups. Stalkers live with a self-fulfilling and self justifying idea of the other person," he added. The recent annual report published by the rape crisis cell of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has also reported that there has been a an unabated increase in the number of crimes against women with 375 cases of rape being recorded by the cell in 2010 alone. Since its inception in 2005 the cell has so far recorded 1,250 rape cases.

According to DCW's annual report, the total number of cases of crime against women have gone up to 2,201 in 2010 from 1,975 in 2009. Women welfare organisations have been demanding amendments in the laws relating to rape, molestation and sexual harassment. "We have been advocating for stringent laws for crime against women. Only stringent punishment can help curb these crimes. We made some recommendations for amendments in the Sexual Assaults Bill last year," chairperson of the National Commission for Women, Girija Vyas, said.

DU student killing: Sketch of suspect released
The Delhi Police on Wednesday released the sketch of a suspect in the murder of a young girl outside her college but expressed dismay that no one who was present at the scene has come forward as witness to the incident. Investigators said the assailant was trailing the victim, Radhika Tanwar (20), from her house in Naraina and chose the foot over-bridge (FoB) outside Ramlal Anand College in Dhaula Kuan’s Shantiniketan area to shoot her.

Police have ruled out property or monetary angle in the murder which shocked the capital on Tuesday. “There was only one assailant. It appears that somebody who is obsessed with her was behind the murder,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) H.G.S. Dhaliwal said. Mr. Dhaliwal said it was “very unfortunate” that no one has come forward and informed police that they have witnessed the incident.

“A lot of people witnessed the incident. Everybody denied that they saw it. We have not come across anybody who said they have seen it. It is not possible,” he said, adding, there was also delay in taking the victim to a hospital. Mr. Dhaliwal said with the help of three persons, they have prepared the sketch of the suspect, a youth who is around 5’5” with a wheatish complexion. “We are on the killer’s trail. It is a planned murder. The suspect knew her very well. He knew her routine,” he said.

The assailant selected the FoB because it was congested and he thought he could escape fast, he said. “He knew that he could not attack her on a public bus and he could be caught. He observed her movements and decided to attack her on the FoB. He waited at the ramp, attacked her and then fled,” he said. “The noise level in the locality was so high, he knew the sound of firing will be drowned in it. Some even mistook the gunshot for the sound of crackers,” he said. Mr. Dhaliwal said she was shot at close-range.

Police now expects the family and her close friends to provide some clue about the assailant. “The family is cooperating with us although they are grieving,” he said. Asked whether there was a delay on the action of police in rushing the victim to hospital, Mr. Dhaliwal said the duty Constable was at the spot in 2-3 minutes. “No one from the public made an effort to take her to the hospital. The constable and another man took her in an auto. Two-three autos did not stop despite the constable waving at them. He then forced an auto to stop and took the girl,” he said.

None of the victim’s close friends were with her at the time of the incident, Mr. Dhaliwal said, adding, Tanwar was shot at with a .315 bore country-made pistol. He said they do not have any eye-witness in the “orthodox sense” of the word - who had actually seen some one firing at the girl. “We have three people who have vague recollections of a man running away from the spot soon after the incident,” he said.

Dikshit’s assurance : Earlier in the day, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit visited Tanwar’s family and assured them that the government will do the needful to ensure that they get justice. “I have said very clearly that it is a matter of great concern. The attacks are taking place on women. We hardly hear about any such attacks on men. The police must be more sensitive to ensure safety and security to women,” she said. She also asked Delhiites to speak up against such crimes and said her government has already launched a novel initiative called ‘Awaz Uthao’ under which area-based community groups with special powers will be formed to combat incidents of eve-teasing, violence and harassment of women.

Students take to streets
Meanwhile, a large number of students of Delhi University on Wednesday held a protest march demanding arrest of the killer of Tanwar. Holding placards, the students marched from Ramlal Anand College in DU South Campus to India Gate. The protesters raised slogans like “We want justice”, demanding immediate arrest of the culprit.

“I am stunned. What the hell is going on? It was ten in the morning when this incident took place, It is very shocking for us,” a female protester said. Around 25 per cent of murder victims in the national capital are women. Last year, 519 murders were reported in the capital while the figure was 527 for 2009, 528 (2008) and 467 (2007 and 2006), the police official said.

This year so far, 42 women were raped and 73 molested in the capital. In January, 17 cases of rape were reported besides 29 molestation cases with police claiming that they have solved 95 per cent of rape cases and 83 per cent of molestation cases. In 2010, the city witnessed 489 rape incidents as against 2009’s 459. The figures for 2006 was 609 followed by a drop to 581 next year while in 2008 it further dipped to 466.

Almost similar was the case with molestation cases in the capital in these years but it showed an increase this year to 585 from last year’s 532. While 2008 had 597 cases, there were 835 incidents in 2007 wand 713 in 609. According to the latest National Crime Records Bureau report, Delhi has earned the dubious distinction of being the most unsafe metro, topping the list of ignominy in number of atrocities against women.

Personal motive behind Radhika killing: Police
New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Wednesday said that there was personal motive behind the murder of second-year Bachelor of Arts (BA) student of Delhi University's Ram Lal Anand College Radhika Tanwar. "Property was not the motive of the crime, it was some personal reason. We have tried reaching out to her friends, classmates, family to know more about what happened," said DCP (South Delhi) HGS Dhaliwal. The police also claimed that the assailant knew about her movement completely - knew what time she leaves her residence, takes the bus, gets dropped at Satya Niketan bus stop. And the foot over bridge has been carefully selected to murder Radhika.

"It's almost certain that she was observed by the assailant," said Dhaliwal in a press conference. Informing that Radhika's friend who accompanied her everyday didn't accompany her on Tuesday, Dhaliwal said, "It can be a case of obsession". Radhika was shot by a 315 bore pistol and medical aid was not provided to Radhika soon after the shoot happened, he claimed.

"Duty constable reached within no time, he tried to stop many rickshaws which didn't stop and then he had to force one rickshaw to carry Radhika to the hospital," he said. The police have constituted different teams, which worked in different areas of Delhi in Radhika Tanwar murder case, informed Dhaliwal. Emphasising that there was no intention of loot in the case, Dhaliwal said, "She was shot from a close range and he knew her movement".

"College students stand on the ramp she was standing at, it's generally crowded at this time," he informed. "There were too many witnesses of the murder but everyone denied seeing anything. It's unfortunate that witnesses did not cooperate with us," he said. The police had received two different kinds of calls when the incident happened. "The description given to us is approximate, we have not come across anyone who has seen this incident happening," said Dhaliwal. But Dhaliwal acknowledged that the family of Radhika Tanwar has cooperated with the police completely. "Family and friends are in a better mental state today to cooperate with us," he said.

There was somebody from the vicinity who saw an individual running away from the spot. The police have made a portrait with the help of information given to them from different people. "We have a vague idea about this person who followed Radhika yesterday," Dhaliwal said. "We request people to come forward and share with us any information on Radhika case," appealed Dhaliwal.
