The court said “police will have to earn the faith of the public that they are always there for them in need”.

The bench expressed its concern over the response time of the police team in reaching the crime spot, and said that “they should reach quickly in order to give guarantee to citizens of Delhi that they are safe here.”

The court was hearing a PIL initiated by it after the December 16, 2012 gang-rape case, in which it has been giving directions to improve crime investigation and protect women in the national capital.

The bench gave the direction on the submissions made by Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain who, while reading the affidavit filed by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), said that to “ensure safety and security of women in the national capital, response time of the Delhi police to distress calls reportedly reduced to 10 minutes”.

The court also expressed concern over the way the police team handles a case with most criminals going scot free in absence of any clinching evidence. It said the police team should comprise “experts, including a forensic pathologist, who determine the cause of death by examining a corpse”.
