City Police get a total of 3,665 tenants' data

Complying with the one-month deadline given by the office of the Police Commissioner to owners of houses and paying guest accommodations, to provide details of their tenants, an additional 1,512 tenants’ data has been received.

A few days after taking charge as the Police Commissioner, on April 29, B Dayananda had instructed the landlords, including those of houses and paying guest accommodations, to provide the details of their tenants within one month, under Suraksha Scheme. To give a much needed filip, the commissioner had made it compulsory to provide the details under Karnataka Police Act. In the event of failure, the owners will attract penalty under IPC Section 188 for disobeying the order of a public servant.

The scheme, launched by the previous commissioner M A Saleem, is aimed at ensuring the safety and security of the city, with anti-social elements creeping into the city under the guise of tenants. When the scheme was launched, as many as 2,153 tenants details had been received by the police authorities. With the recent inclusion, the total has gone up to 3,665 and the numbers are expected to increase with the police authorities deciding to extend the deadline.

It is a continuous process, as the landlords are expected to submit the details as and when a new tenant checks in. Most importantly, the owners have to inform the police personnel in prior about the existing tenant vacating the house.
The landlords should provide details by filling separate applications issued at the jurisdictional stations. The details include tenants name, address, occupation, cellphone number, Aadhaar number, voters ID, passport and his or her passport size photograph.

Chamundi Hill
To check violation of traffic rules around Chamundi Hill, the jurisdictional Siddhartha Nagar police conducted a special drive on Friday, booking a total of 71 cases.

Taking cognisance of the mishaps, involving vehicles coming down the hill in neutral mode with both the engine and headlights turned off, as many as 32 such vehicles were intercepted during the drive. It was followed by 23 vehicles, for using high beam lights, 14 for reckless riding or driving and two riders for failing to produce driving licences on the spot, totalling 71 cases. Fines have been collected from the offenders.

Police Commissioner B Dayananda has warned of similar drives in the future, the release said.
