The Delhi Police has said that action against the negligent police personnel in the Kanjhawala death case would be initiated on Friday (January 13). This comes after the gruesome January 1 incident in which 20-year-old Anjali Singh, who was riding a scooter, was found dead on the street after being allegedly hit and dragged for several kilometres by a car driven by five youths in Outer Delhi`s Kanjhawala area.

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Thursday recommended suspending police personnel deployed in three PCR vans and at two police pickets after taking cognizance of a detailed Delhi Police report on the case. These police personnel were on duty at the time of the incident.
