Patrolling to be increased: SP

Increase in patrolling and creation of a separate Bantwal sub-division in the district will help to check crime and atrocities on women, said Superintendent of Police Abhishek Goyal.

Speaking at SC/ST meeting here on Sunday, he said that increase in number of eve-teasing instances and cases of sexual assaults will be dealt with. The district had one sub division in the past. With the government giving nod for Bantwal sub division, the district will have two DySPs. This will help in disposal of cases at the earliest. “We will also be increasing patrolling in the rural areas,” said the SP.

The residents of Modappady said that a  person hailing from upper class had made an attempt to rape a girl from Koraga community on October 10, 2012. However, the police have failed to initiate action against the culprit even after three months.

Reacting to it, the SP said that FIR has been registered and promised to look into the issue and initiate action against the accused. All steps will be taken to prevent untoward incidents in the district, through police surveillance.

When a Dalit leader complained of children of coffee plantation workers made to work as domestic labourers, the SP said that the issue comes under the purview of women and child welfare department. “If there are any specific cases, then the police can hand over the children to the custody of the CWC.”

Ganesh from Balthila village in Bantwal taluk has said that Ambedkar Development Corporation had sanctioned a loan of Rs seven lakh, to take up self-employment. He accused the Corporation Manager for forcing him to avail vehicle loan instead of loan for self-employment. Another complainant said that the Corporation official is denying applications seeking loan to purchase autorickshaw. The SP promised to consult the district administration on the issue.
