New Delhi: Home Minister P Chidambaram today sought to blame migrants to Delhi for crimes like rape, a statement that came under attack from political leaders, following which he withdrew it.
“……nevertheless crime takes place because Delhi attracts a large number of migrants. There are a large number of unauthorised colonies. And these migrants who settle in city’s north-west colonies carry a kind of behaviour which is unacceptable in any modern city. So crimes do take place,” Chidambaram told reporters on the sidelines of a function.
Condemning the recent rape incidents in the capital, he said steps are being taken by setting up more police stations, recruiting more police men and putting more police vehicles on the roads to improve the law and situation here.
