Gateman Kundan Pathak's refusal to open a level crossing gate in North Delhi's Narela area because a train was approaching could cost him both his hands with bike-borne assailants hacking at him till he collapsed, railway officials said today.
Pathak, 28, whose hands were severed in the assault late yesterday, has been admitted to a hospital in Rohini, the officials said.
Delhi Police told the Delhi High Court yesterday that they have installed around 4,388 CCTV cameras in vulnerable areas of the national capital to ensure safety and security of women.
Some lawyers had filed public interest litigation (PIL) in March in this regard after a few women complained about "urine and semen-filled" balloons being hurled at them in North Campus, Delhi University.
Counting of votes for the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students' Union (JNUSU) polls was suspended today morning after Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members protested alleging they weren't informed about the process.
The RSS-affiliated ABVP said their counting agent wasn't informed about the beginning of counting of votes polled in science schools.
The JNU Election Committee said it suspended the counting temporarily.
