Dear Justice Verma,
Wish you a very happy new year .
It is a an open fact that police does not register FIRs to keep their record better for their own good , and desist people from registering an FIR.
It is time that we opt any or all of these three measures ;
1. Online reporting of FIRs
2. Reporting via Mobile phones
3.Outsourcing of FIRs to private players
If we can privatise issuing of passports to TCS, digitisation of post offices to Infosys, issuing of Aadhaar cards to private soft ware companies . Why hesitate from privatising National FIR Reporting ( NFR) ?
Once the FIR is reported , it should be examined by legal experts and passed on the appropriate authority for action .
Also, crimes happen as police are not in touch with the locals . Suppose a city has 40,000 Sq km area. Administration should depute one police man / women for 1 sq. km, and this police should be connected to all the residents in the area and be responsible for any crime / incident in the area. This is the best way to keep the crimes low and infuse a sense of trust in the system for the common man. Of course, administration could supplement the police with public surveillance and volunteers under each police person
Time to make radical reforms in police :

Today, the CJI, Altamas Kabir , who justified the public reaction against the ghastly incident, said the offence could have been averted had the Supreme Court guidelines on removal of tinted glasses from the vehicles been followed. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Delhi-gang-rape-CJI-Altamas-Kabir-calls-for-speedy-trial-of-case/articleshow/17859854.cms
If so is the case , why not try the Commissioner of Traffic police , Delhi for rape ? Why make these catchy statements in public which cannot be actioned upon ?
Time to teach these lousy , highly paid & irresponsible bureaucrats a lesson . Since this statement comes form the highest judicial authority in India , it must be actioned upon .
Our health minister recently said, that AIIMS is amongst the best in the world when it comes to medical care ! Then why do we need an air ambulance to send the gang-rape victim to Singapore for treatment ?
This gang rape has exposed a few facts ;
1. Girls or police – no one is safe in the capital
2. Government has no experience of handling the ground realities and is arrogant to the core
3. Healthcare facilities in India are not up to the standard.
4. Youth in India are not going to sit back and relax , but will take to the streets to bring out the change – Arab Spring
Rape is a rarest of rare crime ! It needs deterrents like
A ) Castrate the rapist
B) Tattoo the crime on the hand , and on the forehead
C ) In fact, all the criminals should pay for their stay in jails
