Meanwhile, Congress and BJP targeted Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal over the molestation incident.
"Be it molestation or rape, Delhi has seen an increase in such crimes and they have risen all the more under the Kejriwal dispensation. I want him and his ministers to focus on women's security. Where else will women feel safe if not the national capital?" former Delhi chief minister, Sheila Dikshit asked.
