Add teeth to police plaints authority, State told

The High Court of Karnataka has directed the State government to hold a meeting with secretary of the Home department, secretary of the State Human Rights Commission and State Legal Services Authority to effectively establish police complaints authority at the State and district levels. 

Justice A N Venugopala Gowda said that the district police complaints authority (DPCA) appears to be inactive and that there is a need to have a secretariat office to manage these plaints. The bench directed the counsel representing the State government to collect all the details and to submit it before the bench in the next hearing on March 4, 2016.
