Dikshit promises steps to allay fear of NE students

Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 31, 2009

New Delhi, Oct 31 (PTI) Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today promised to initiate appropriate steps to allay security concerns of northeasterners even as students from the region held a demonstration protesting rising crime against them in the national capital.

“Delhi is your city. It is as much yours as of anybody else’s. We will do everything possible to ensure your safety and security,” Dikshit told a group of students who were protesting against the recent attacks on women from the region.

The murder of a teenage girl from Nagaland last week allegedly by an IIT Phd scholar is snowballing into a major issue, triggering widespread protests by students from the region.

Yesterday, a delegation of the North East Students Organisation (NESO) had met Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi seeking his help in the wake of a number of attacks against women from the region staying in the city.
