Ensure secrecy while conducting raids, DGP told

Share This

Chandigarh, September 22

The Punjab Police have virtually landed themselves in the dock for stereotype claims on the escape of accused from the spot during police raids. Describing the “coincidence” as “very strange”, Justice Arun Kumar Tyagi has asserted this suggested either leakage of information, manipulation of record or inefficiency by the police.

Justice Tyagi said the audio-video recording facilities available in smartphones with the police were also deliberately not used for ulterior motive/extraneous considerations. Asking the state Director General of Police (SGP) to look into the matter personally, Justice Tyagi directed the top cop to issue appropriate instructions for remedial steps to conduct such raids with requisite secrecy, coordination and communication with the SHO/higher police officers to prevent the escape of offenders.

The matter was brought to the High Court’s notice after Bittu Ram filed a petition for anticipatory bail in a theft case. — TNS
