'Powers to transfer cops to be decentralized'

Written By Unknown on Sabtu, 13 Desember 2014 | 22.23

Nagpur: Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis said powers to transfer police personnel would be decentralized. Vesting all powers with Mantralaya was leading to indiscipline and insubordination in the force, he said.

Replying to a discussion on law and order, Fadnavis said in the state assembly that his government's mantra would be `zero tolerance' to crime, drugs, illicit liquor and bad behaviour of policemen towards ordinary citizens. He said the government wanted every crime to be registered and police personnel's performances would be appraised based on cases cracked. "We want charge-sheets to be filed based on credible evidence. Only this will ensure conviction rates go up. We do not want the police to file chargesheets where there is no case,'' he said. "Crime will reduce if convictions rise,'' he said.

In June, the Democratic Front government had approved the Maharashtra Police (Amendment) Act, 2014, concentrating all powers of transfer with the home department.A senior bureaucrat in the chief minister's office said the government had decided to empower the superintendent of police to transfer constables and senior constables within his district. The inspector general can transfer police personnel within his range, while directorgeneral of police level officials can transfer cops up to the level of subinspector. Only transfers of IPS officers and senior state police officials will be done by Mantralaya.

Fadnavis said two more forensic laboratories would be set up in the state. He said he wanted every crime reported by women to be registered and acted upon. Special cells will be set up at every police station to handle crime against women.

The government will also set up a cyber emergency response team as posting of provocative pictures was leading to law and order problems.

CM clarifies he told DGP not to call IPS officers Mumbai: Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday clarified that he had told director-general of police Sanjeev Dayal not to call certain Indian Police Service (IPS) officers for the meeting on infrastructure and CCTVs.

During his reply on the law and order discussion in the legislative assembly, Fadnavis said he felt the need for a clarification as the issue reported in newspapers was raised in the House. Fadnavis said that when he had called a meeting on infrastructure and CCTV, a letter was sent out from his office to all heads, inviting them for the meeting.

"When I spoke to the DGP, I realized not everyone needed to be present, and I conveyed the same to him. The DGP, in turn, told them not to come an hour before the meeting. The additional chief secretary (home) was not informed by my office that I had told the officials not to be called. As per procedure, he sought an explanation,'' said Fadnavis, adding that he had told chief secretary Swadheen Kshatriya to probe the matter. He denied groupism in the police force.

TOI had reported about the cold war that had broken out between additional directors-general Himanshu Roy, Sanjay Barve and Hemant Nagrale with Dayal over the latter's alleged "ill-treatment of subordinates".

In written submissions, the IPS officers had made serious allegations against Dayal, claiming that he was ill-treating subordinates.

Following the terror attacks on Mumbai on November 26, 2008, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, at a meeting with then chief minister Ashok Chavan, had expressed concern over groupism in the Mumbai police force.
