On this, Bassi said that in addition to the measures taken by the force, every woman in Delhi would be trained in self-defence.

Bassi also said at lest 87 criminals carrying reward on their heads were arrested and 23 major gangs busted in 2014.

On the issue of terrorism, he said no attack took place in past two years but 13 terrorists, seven from Indian Mujahideen (IM) and three-each from Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Student Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) were arrested in 2014.

Mobile and computer-based technologies like lost report app, traffic police mobile app, police clearance certificate and Himmat were launched in 2014.

"Such people-friendly technologies were launched with an objective to make the police more friendly with the people," said Bassi. He also said more apps will be launched in helping the people to avoid going to police stations for small complaints.
