State to act tough on public outrage against police

He was speaking at a programme organised to hand over a unique kit - Police Connect - to traffic constables as part of community care initiative of Manthan Systems. The Police Connect includes jackets, torches and umbrellas, provided by Manthan Systems.

Shankar Bidari said, “Of late, public outburst against cops had been increasing at an alarming rate. People lack patience and vent their anger on the traffic police which is uncalled for. Rain or shine, the constables slog their backs off for the safety of the public.

But in return, they are at the receiving end. We are taking the matter seriously and in a few days, a Government Order will be out and details will be worked out to punish the erring public,” he added.

Many times, people tend to show off under the influence of money and alcohol. A few drop names and create ruckus in public but they will be dealt with seriously, Bidari said.
Policing is not easy, with 10 million people and four million vehicles in the City, Bidari said and thanked the sponsors Manthan Systems for its kind gesture.

“It is nice to see corporate sector coming forward and lending a helping hand,” he added.
Atul Jalan, MD and CEO, Manthan Systems, said “This is a beginning and we have covered three police stations from the Central part of the City. We are planning to cover the entire City in the days to come in a phased manner,” he said.

“We are losing more than half-a-dozen constables every month. Either they are injured or they are victims of hit-and-run cases,” said Praveen Sood, Additional Commissioner (Traffic and Security).  Around 300 policemen received the kit.
