Delhi gang-rape: cop killed, protesters say no holiday on Xmas


A 47-year-old Delhi Police constable, who suffered serious injuries during violent protests at India Gate on Sunday, died on Tuesday after battling for life in a city hospital.
Subhash Chand Tomar was on ventilator since his admission at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital on Sunday evening.
“With deep regret, we have to inform you constable Subhash Chand Tomar succumbed to his injuries at 6:40AM today,” Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said.
Tomar, a graduate in arts, hailed from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh.
He was posted in Karawal Nagar area and was called for maintaining law and order at India Gate area during the protests on Sunday over the gang-rape of a 23-year-old girl on December 16.
Tomar, who joined the police in 1987, was found lying injured on Tilak Marg and was rushed to the hospital.
As a mark of respect, the Delhi Police decided that all personnel will donate one day’s salary to Tomar’s family.
Police had already arrested eight persons, including an activist of Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party, earlier and charged them with attempt to murder in connection with the injuries caused to Tomar.
A senior police official said murder charges will be now added to the case.
Meanwhile, anti-rape protesters are all set for another day of agitations and rallies for women’s safety. Heavy security can’t deter them, they say. And despite Tuesday being Christmas, they are hoping hundreds will join them again in thier fight for justice to 23-year-old gangrape victim.
The woman continues to fight for her life in Safdarjung Hospital. her condition was reported to have deteriorated on Monday.
“She showed tendencies of internal bleeding at the drainage site inside the abdomen and there are signs of infection developing in the blood,” said Dr BD Athani, medical superintendent at the hospital.
She was also running a fever fluctuating between 102 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit.
“The positive sign, however, is that her vital parameters were within acceptable limits. Her lungs and kidneys were working fine,” said Dr MC Misra, chief, AIIMS Trauma Centre, who is assisting the team of Safdarjung doctors.
