PM assures measures to ensure safety of women

Says public anger is 'justified' but asks protestors to desist from violence

With continuing on the ghastly incident of gang rape in the capital, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has assured that the government will examine without delay not only the responses to this terrible crime but also all aspects concerning the safety of women and children and punishment to those who commit these monstrous crimes.

"Our Government will keep you informed of the steps we are taking and the processes we are following. I appeal to all sections of society to maintain and help us in our efforts," he said in a statement, which was also televised.

The Prime Minister said there was genuine and justified anger and anguish at the ghastly crime of gang rape committed last Sunday in Delhi.

"As a father of three daughters myself, I feel as strongly about this as each one of you. My wife, my family and I are all joined in our concern for the young woman who was the victim of this heinous crime. We are constantly monitoring her medical condition. Let us all pray for her and her loved ones during this critical time," Singh said.

"I also feel deeply sad at the turn of events leading to clashes between protesters and police forces. Anger at this crime is justified but violence will serve no purpose. I appeal to all concerned citizens to maintain peace and calm. I assure you that we will make all possible efforts to ensure security and safety of women in this country," he added.

The Prmie Minister also pointed out that Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had already spoken about the steps being taken.
