Home minister pays surprise  visit to Whitefield police station
Home Minister G Parameshwara on Tuesday morning caught a handful of police constables on duty at Whitefield police station unawares. According to top police officials, the minister was returning by a private car after meeting his friend.

Around 8.30 am, he noticed the Whitefield police station and asked his driver to stop. He went into the police station and noticed only four police constables on duty.

The constables alerted the other staff over the wireless. Sub-inspector Nagappa rushed to the station and told the minister that inspector Narasimha Murthy is in Maharashtra for investigation. Around 9 am, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Rohini Katoch Sepat rushed to the police station. A few minutes later Police Commissioner NS Megharikh and Additional Commissioner of Police (East) Harishekaran visited the police station, added the source.

The minister interacted with the officers and the staff at the station. He examined the FIRs, registers and other documents in the police station. He advised the officers to clear the pendency. Also, the minister told them the area was home to several IT and BT companies and hence a large number of techies reside there. So, it is necessary for the police to be on constant vigil to make sure that no untoward incident occurs.

“The staff at the police station informed him (minister) that the senior police officers hold meetings with the companies on a regular basis and discuss about various measures to be implemented in connection with the safety of the people residing in the jurisdiction. Also, they requested the minister for a new building for the police station. He replied that he would discuss with the officials and decide on it,” said Rohini Katoch Sepat.
