Agartala: Stressing on the need for strengthening police-public relations, chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb urged police officers to adopt zero tolerance to crime against women in the state.
“Anyone coming to the police stations shouldn’t be harassed mentally. FIRs or general diaries should be accepted by police officials. In woman-related cases, they should be handled with care by women police stations. There should be zero tolerance when it comes to crime against women,” Deb said told police officers at a review meeting held in the state capital on Wednesday.
The meeting was called to review the law-and-order situation of the state.
The CM also asked the officers in charge (OCs) of police stations of the state to launch a massive crackdown on various anti-social activities. He, however, appreciated the role of the police department in cracking down on ganja cultivators and smugglers in the past eight months.
“Women-related cases should be handled carefully at women police stations. Everyone should work hard and honesty should be maintained while discharging duties, failing which strict action will be taken against the guilty,” he added.
Director General of Police (DGP) AK Sukla, Addl DG (law & order) Rajiv Singh and DIG Arindam Nath, among other senior police officers and officials of the state home department, were present in the meeting.
