Piyush Goyal compliments Delhi Police for JNU probe

Hours after Delhi Police identified 9 suspects in connection with the January 5 violence on JNU campus, the force earned praise from Union minister Piyush Goyal for a "very quick" investigation.

"I must compliment the Delhi Police for a very very quick investigation in the recent case... which I think is a great feather in their cap," the minister said at an event organised by the Kailash Satyarthi Children's Foundation here.

Goyal said Deputy Commissioner of Police Joy Tirkey, who is heading the special investigation team probing the case, "has slept only 4 hours in the last 2 days".

"He has used the most modern digital technology tools (facial recognition) to crack one of the most sensitive cases the Delhi Police was grappling with. Compliments to you (Tirkey) and your team," he said.
