Officials say the child is in serious condition after being raped and tortured by a man who held her in a locked room in India's capital for two days.

NEW DELHI-- The Delhi government will issue permits to 10,000 new autorickshaws by the end of this month in a bid to strengthen the public transport system in the national capital ahead of the odd-even vehicle scheme coming into force from January 1.

The Arvind Kejriwal government has already announced that it will add 6,000 additional buses to the city's roads to facilitate commuters during the 15-day trial period of the odd-even formula.

According to the transport department, there are currently 80,000 autos plying in the capital and new autorickshaws will play an important role to take load of increasing numbers of commuters.

"In view of the odd-even scheme, government has expedited the process of issuing permits to 10,000 new autorickshaws and by the end of December, the transport department will issue the same," a top official told PTI.

The department has set a range of permit conditions for the plying of autos which include electronic fare meter fitted with Global Positioning System (GPS) among others.

"As part of government's plan to provide last-mile connectivity to commuters in Delhi, 10,000 new permits will give a boost to public transport, which is being augmented ahead of the odd-even formula," the official said.
