DGP asks cops to escort residents to banks2 min read
Patna: Director-general of police (DGP) K.S. Dwivedi on Thursday directed all superintendents of police (SPs) to provide police escort to people while going to the banks to deposit cash.
Expressing concern at the spurt in incidents of cash loot in the state, the DGP said many people fell victims to robbers while going to banks to deposit huge cash.
“I would like to suggest that they inform the local police station, which, in turn, will provide police escort,” he said on the sidelines of a review meeting on law and order situation at Ara in Bhojpur district.
The DGP was accompanied by ADG, CID, Vinay Kumar and IG (Patna zone) N.H. Khan, as they reviewed law and order in the districts under Shahabad range, namely Bhojpur, Buxar, Rohtas and Kaimur districts.
Magadh range DIG Vinay Kumar, who holds additional charge of Shahabad range, was also present at the meeting, which lasted four hours.
Dwivedi told the SPs to ensure that cases related to land disputes were solved on a priority basis. He directed the SPs to hold special camps on the premises of the police stations to deal with property-related cases.
The camps should be attended by the circle officer of the area and the SHO concerned.
The DGP also expressed displeasure over pending cases at the police stations. Issues related to scientific investigation, disposal of cases and timely submission of chargesheets in courts were also discussed at the meeting.
Next week, the DGP will review law and order in the districts under Kosi region.
