During the hearing, the court asked the police to consider installing a Global Positioning System (GPS) in all private transport vehicles so that their location could be traced in the event of such crimes.

Dayan Krishnan, appearing for Delhi Police, assured the court that this suggestion would also be looked into and informed that the entire PCR system has been reviewed and fresh guidelines have been issued to make it more effective.

On the last date of hearing, the court had said it would deal later with the issue of medical treatment given to the victims and had asked the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to take immediate steps to increase the number of PCR vans in the Capital to ensure better safety of citizens, including women.

Earlier, Delhi Police had tendered an unconditional apology to the High Court following the rap it got on its knuckles over not naming all the officials patrolling the area in which the girl was gangraped and brutally assaulted last month.

After the apology, the court had accepted the fresh status report filed by the police.
