Former army chief General VK Singh said the brutal rape of a 23-year-old woman in the national capital is "indicative of complete collapse of governance" as the security agencies are for the "so-called VVIPs" and not for the ordinary citizens.

 “Today, the very agencies entrusted with policing the state and maintaining law and order have become nothing more than security agencies for the rich and famous, the so-called ‘VVIP class’ of Delhi. For an average citizen, getting a case registered, even when grievously wronged, is a virtual impossibility, let alone getting any form of justice,” he said.

“We cannot let this go the Jessica Lal way, where if it were not for the efforts of her family, her killer would be back in business,” he said.
