Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde explained to parliament new plans to improve security for women in Delhi. Police patrolling will increase at night, he said. Private buses when they are not in use must be parked with their owners, he said. The photo IDs of the driver and staff of every bus will have to be displayed, and the police will enforce this, he said.
The bus which was used in Sunday night's gang-rape was run by a private operator, had tinted windows, which is illegal, and was contracted to a school.
