Many cases of daylight murders and bloody attacks have been reported across Delhi over the past few months.

Most recently, in Delhi's neighbouring Ghaziabad a man was beaten to death by two men on a busy street as cars, motorcycles and vehicles zoomed past. Someone even shot a video of the horrific crime but no one stopped to help.

Earlier in November, a 19-year-old man was beaten, dragged and stabbed multiple times by a group of men in a busy residential area of north-west Delhi. Here too people watched, but did not come forward to help.
