The body was found in North Delhi, one of the posh areas of the city.It is a strategic place with many college’s like Hindu College, Ramjas College and, Miranda House. Along with that North Campus is the hub of students all over Delhi primarily because the University’s main offices departments are located here. It is also to be noted that important buildings like the Delhi Assembly and the Red Fort and markets like Kamla Nagar are just a few kilometres away from this place. The number of murders, which are considered the prime indicators of crime situation in the city, witnessed a rise in the first quarter of 2018. A total of 130 murders were reported till 31st March 2018.All these factors raise a question about the security and create fear in the mind of the students.
DU Beat tried to reach out to the students and the teachers but, most of them seem to be ignorant towards the situation as of now.
