Pachuau pats his own back

Bangalore,Nov 10, 2012 DHNS:

Director General and Inspector General of Police Lalrokhuma Pachuau on Friday said that he has performed fairly well in maintaining law and order in the State in the past five months when he held the concurrent charge as the state police chief.

Pachuau told mediapersons here that he had successfully faced many challenges in the past five months. He said it was a tough period as he had to handle issues such as the murder of Deputy Director of Cooperative Societies S P Mahantesh and JD(S) leader B M L Krishnappa, law and order problem at Nithyananda Dhyanapeetham near Bidadi, exodus of people from North-East region to their home land, violent protests in the Cauvery belt, rape charge against French diplomat Pascal Mazurier, gang rape of a law student on Jnanabharathi campus in Bangalore, violent incidents at a home stay near Mangalore and communal violence in Belgaum.

The process to fill vacant posts in Karnataka State Industrial Security Force and other police units would be completely shortly. Traffic situation in Bangalore had improved considerably, he claimed.


Additional Director General of Police (State Computer Wing) Praveen Sood said the department has connected 906 police stations across the state through police IT software. The police higher-ups can get access to any FIR, charge sheet or any document within no time.

“The initiative is first of its kind in the state. Now people can pay the fees, for availing themselves the services offered by the police department under Sakaala scheme, at BangaloreOne and KarnatakaOne. “As many as 20,000 people across the state have used this facility from June 1 and the number will gradually increase as many people are not aware of the facility.” The police IT wing has recently started another facility- SMS Gateway-  that enables people to know the status of their grievances, Sood said.

Bangalore City Police Commissioner B G Jyothiprakash Mirji, Additional Commissioner (law and order) T Suneel Kumar, Additional Commissioner (traffic and security) M A Saleem, Joint Commissioners of Crime (east division and west division) were present.
