Talking to ANI, Ahir said, "Action has been taken against the concerned police personnel who relaxed the rules for an arrested accused. The senior officials of Delhi police have taken an instant action. Apart from suspended police personnel, if involvement of other police officials comes to fore then he/she will not be spared."

The MoS Home also said that police can't afford to commit such mistakes as it impacts law and order.

"This incident has made us think what measures are to be taken to ensure such actions are not repeated. We will think whether a provision is needed under law to avoid such incidents. This is unpardonable crime. Police officers cannot afford to make such mistakes," Ahir said.

Deependra Pathak, PRO, Delhi Police, confirmed suspension of seven Delhi police officials.

"Seven police personnel have been suspended. The inquiry will be conducted in a time bound manner and strict action will be taken," Pathak told ANI.
