New Delhi, Jun 17 (UNI) Delhi Police have registered a cross FIR in the matter pertaining to the assault of a Gramin Sewa tempo driver in North West Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar area on Sunday.

ASIs suspended
Three personnel, including two Assistant Sub-Inspectors, have already been placed under immediate suspension for their unprofessional conduct in handling the situation on the basis of preliminary findings, the police said, adding that further necessary action, as warranted, will be taken on the basis of the findings of the enquiry.

Delhi Police has also said that it follows a policy of zero tolerance towards any unprofessional conduct or any unnecessary excess even while performing official duties or handling a crowd control situation.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal strongly condemned the police conduct and called it "unjustified" and further demanded an impartial prob into the matter.
Mr Kejriwal on Monday also visited the residence of Gramin Seva auto driver, who was allegedly assaulted last evening by several Delhi Police personnel at Mukherjee Nagar
He added that, ''The LG and the Home Minister will have to be very strict about the rising rate of crime in Delhi. This needs to stop. What has happened is highly condemnable and those responsible should not be spared.''
"Delhi Police brutality in Mukherjee Nagar is highly condemnable and unjustified. I demand an impartial probe into the whole incident & strict action against the guilty. Protectors of citizens can't be allowed to turn into uncontrolled violent mobsters,'' Mr Kejriwal tweeted.
