of the Delhi gang rape victim that police response to their distress call after
the incident was slow.
joint secretary-level officer of the ministry will investigate the claim by the
software engineer that even after reaching the spot on the night of December
16, the police were arguing over the jurisdiction of the case and were hesitant
to lift the 23-year-old girl, losing crucial time.

logbooks of the Police Control Room vans which came to the spot, where the girl
and her friend were dumped by the six men after the gang rape.

some space being made the police refused to bring in the accused until the
court was completely cleared.
police's stand, and commotion created by the lawyers present, compelled the
judge to pass a restraining order which said: "An unprecedented situation
has arisen where members of the bar and public persons even unconnected with
the case have started converging in the courtroom. The courtroom has become
jam-packed with lots of disturbance from different nooks and corner. It has
become extremely impossible to proceed with the case. I'm invoking Section 327
(2)(3) of CrPC. Hence, all public persons and everybody present in the
courtroom are directed to vacate the court room."
