UP CM sets up 2 committees to screen cops

LUCKNOW: After ordering dismissal of police officials accused of being engaged in criminal offences, CM Yogi Adityanath directed the authorities to screen all personnel at the police stations and circles.
Presiding over a high-level meeting, the CM directed to prepare a list of corrupt policemen by constituting two separate committees under the chairmanship of director general of police, intelligence Devendra Singh Chauhan, and additional DG, law and order, Prashant Kumar. Based on the report submitted by the two committees, the government will take stringent action against the erring policemen.
The committee constituted under the chairmanship of DG Intelligence will have ADG Law and Order and secretary, home as a member. This committee will screen the officers in the rank of additional superintendent of police and deputy superintendent of police.
Likewise, the second committee headed by ADG (L&O) will screen policemen of inspector and sub-inspector level. In this committee, the ADG establishment and home secretary will be the members. These committees will give their report after examining the policemen posted in the same district for three years and if they have any kind of allegations against them.
Yogi instructed the police to improve its working style. “UP Police is the largest civilian police force in the country and has also given splendid examples of its efficiency on several occasions,” Yogi observed. “But there are complaints of some policemen indulging in illegal activities. Recently, some senior officers have been dismissed from service for their misconduct and many policemen have been suspended,” the CM said.
He said that “not a single” policeman involved in corruption should remain a part of UP Police. “Identify such personnel and provide a list along with proofs,” he added.
