Joint CP Displeased

Unhappy with the performance of traffic DCPs, joint commissioner of Police (traffic) Garima Bhatnagar sent ‘displeasure’ notes to various traffic range heads. Reason for sending notes was a sudden decrease in the number of rash driving and speeding cases. The officer directed the officials to be on their toes to prosecute errant drivers and control traffic.

Setting Priorities Right

Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik missed the second phase launch of Parakram Vans—his dream project—on Saturday. It is said that he was busy patrolling city areas ahead of Independence Day, the same night. These vans will be manned by one driver, an in charge and three commandos armed with small weapons and trained by NSG in offensive/evasive driving with 360 degree turning and firing in mobile mode.

Use WhatsApp Cautiously

If technology can help in progress, it can also stop your growth. Something similar would have happened with this southern range traffic inspector, who wrongly sent a screenshot of a group chat in which he had made fun of a senior officer’s language. Later, the image was shared in other groups. But thankfully, the screenshot did not reach the HQ.

Transfers on Hold

An SHO indulging in bribery for transfer has put Delhi police on a back foot. Now top brass is telling inspectors, who had come for the interview, that no money will work here if they have paid someone for transfer or posting. It happened after Chanakyapuri ex-SHO, Banay Singh, was held by the CBI for allegedly trying to pay bribe for transfer.
