Public opinion and media was painting a "negative picture" of the force after the incident, Kumar said and added that the Government of India, especially the Home Ministry stood by the Delhi Police during the time.
"I thank Sushilkumar Shinde and RPN Singh for their support," he said.
The Home Minister also praised Delhi Police for solving the Pune blast case by arresting five Indian Mujahideen terrorists.
Shinde also said the Home Ministry has sanctioned another 370 PCR vans for Delhi Police as well as additional women police personnel.
Kumar outlined the steps taken to ensure women's safety in the capital and spoke about the performance of Delhi Police in the last one year.
He said the Delhi Police will soon launch 'Martyr's Fund' which would be funded by police personnel who will contribute their one day salary.
