Nagpur, Jan 23
The newly appointed Director General of Police (DGP), Maharashtra Hemant Nagrale visited the city after taking the charge of DGP recently. He met and interacted with the senior police officials in the city.
During an informal discussion with the media after his meeting with police officials, Nagrale said, “The police machinery is working hard to make the state crime free and seasoned criminals and history-sheeters are on our hit-list. He said that if strict action is taken against notorious criminals, the crime will come under control,” he added.
The externed goons are the ones who are involved in crimes and the police department is put on the job to get the status of each and every externed goon, and get all the possible details on their whereabouts and their locations. A separate list of externed goons who are involved in more than three serious crimes of assault will be prepared and strict laws such as MCOCA, deportation will be slapped against them and their gangs. Top officials of police department in the ranks of commissioner level have been tasked with obtaining daily information about these goons. They will have to prepare a monthly report and present it to all the senior police officials and commissioner. Based on this analysis, further action against the goons will be decided.
Focus to increase
In many cases, witnesses or complainants become hostile. Therefore, the punishment rate crime is less. Special care will be taken to ensure that witnesses and complainants do not become hostile. Apart from this, scientific evidence will also be used for conviction. The emphasis will be on increasing the conviction rate, Nagrale said.
fill vacant posts
There are more than two lakh posts of police officers and staff in the state. Out of which about 20,000 posts are vacant. We will request the chief minister and the home minister to fill the vacancies. The vacant posts of joint commissioner of police and assistant commissioner of police in Nagpur will also be filled soon, informed DIG Nagrale.
