'Moral police will be booked under non-bailable warrant'

Dr Y S Ravikumar takes charge as new SP for Udupi

Speaking to mediapersons soon after assuming the office, Ravikumar said utmost attention will be given to maintain law and order in the district. Measures will be taken to check crime activities like house robbery and chain snatching cases. Evening and late night beats will be organised to control the crime rates.

He said naxal problem has come down and about 90 per cent naxal activities have been curbed. However, there are rumours that the naxal leaders seek support from the inhabitants of the naxal prone areas by threatening and also by pleading them. If these speculations are found right, immediate measures will be taken to tackle the naxal menace in the area, he added.

Non bailable warrant

He said moral policing is illegal and the people involved in moral policing will be charged under IPC sections by issuing non bailable warrant. It is against social morale, he added.

Morning hours will be exclusively meant to address public grievances, he said.
Ravikumar is a MBBS graduate from Bangalore.

He hails from Bhadravathi in Shimoga. He completed his probationary period in Bijapur and was appointed as ASP in Bidar before taking charge as Udupi SP.
