Serious questions were raised about Delhi Police's conduct while recording the victim' statement. Sub Divisional Magistrate Usha Chaturvedi in which she had alleged "interference" by at least three senior police officials while she was recording the statement of the victim. The Cabinet endorsed Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit's demand to Home Minister SushilKumar Shinde for a high-level inquiry into the complaint and felt that police should have exercised restraint in dealing with the protesters at Raisina Hills and India Gate on Saturday and Sunday. Dikshit had shot off a letter to Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde seeking a high-level inquiry into the Sub Divisional Magistrate's complaint. The Police Commissioner had virtually hit back at Dikshit, saying police never forced any questionnaire on the SDM. This has led to a nasty rift between the Delhi government and the police out in the open.
