Delhi gangrape: Bus was on road because agencies didnít team up, says panel

Earlier, the victim's friend had told a television channel that the police response was "slow" and the officers were "callous". He also said PCR staff fought over jurisdiction, wasting crucial time.

Law Minister Kumar said the Central government will take action to the extent possible on the recommendations of the commission.

The Justice Mehra commission also suggested that education standards should be revisited and "girls should be taught about what is a good gesture and a bad gesture".

The commission also suggested that a system should be put in place, in which there should be a "push button in mobile phones through which family or police could be reached immediately when anyone is in distress".

Justice Mehra said the commission has suggested separation of investigation agency from law and order duties. The commission said action should be taken against auto-rickshaw drivers who refuse to ferry commuters, and more DTC buses should be pressed into service.
