New Delhi: Amid rise in incidents of violence in the national capital, Aam Aadmi Party Rajya Sabha MP, Sanjay Singh on Monday gave a Zero hour notice in the upper house of the parliament over the increasing crime in the national capital. The zero hour is the time immediately following the question hour where the members raise important issues with the speaker.

This comes day after a war of words broke out between Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi Police, which falls under the jurisdiction of central government. Taking on the Delhi Police, Kejriwal tweeted about various incidents of murder which took place in the national capital recently. Kejriwal lambasted the Delhi Police saying that with nine murders in 24 hours, there has been a dangerous spurt in serious crimes in the city.
"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 and security of Delhiites?" Kejriwal tweeted.


The bodies of an elderly couple and their caretaker were found with their throats slit at a house in southwest Delhi's Vasant Vihar on Sunday morning. The deceased were identified as Vishnu Mathur (78) and Shashi Mathur (75), both retired government officials, and Khushbu Nautiyal (24), the police said.

Vishnu had retired from the office of the Central Government Health Scheme and Shashi from a civic body in New Delhi. They had been living at Vasant Apartments for nearly 18 years. Nautiyal, who was their caretaker, stayed at their house and had been working with them for the last five-six months, neighbours claimed.

Responding to the Chief Minister's tweet, the Delhi Police from its official handle said: "No such increase in crime in Delhi. Overall heinous crimes down by 10 per cent this year compared to 2018. Similarly heinous crime committed against senior citizens also down by 22 per cent due to preventive efforts of Delhi Police."

"Also, two of the three incidents of murder which Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is referring have been committed by family members or persons living in the house. Both cases are solved and accused arrested. In the Vasant Vihar case also entry is friendly and police has vital leads," the police said referring to the recent murder cases.
