What’s Up on WhatsApp
Delhi Police Joint Commissioner Rajesh Khurana asked for an action taken report on a car theft on a WhatsApp media group, without realising that journalists were on it. He wrote, “Action taken report, Milind” to DCP Northwest Milind Dumbre, who replied, “Right sir, will look into it.” Incidentally, the WhatsApp group was created to provide information to the media, not for official communication between officers.
Friday Night Party
The brass of Delhi Police partied on Friday night in north Delhi's Civil Lines at a farewell for officers who are retiring. Some officers at the bash said alcohol served had a “positive impact”, as some cops expressed their views to their officers honestly, which they were apprehensive of doing earlier. The party was attended by Joint commissioner Northern range, DCP Northwest and Rohini, and Additional DCPs, ACPs and SHOs.
DCP Turned Traffic Cop
It was a rare sight for cops as well as for the public. While a fire raged at Lok Nayak Bhawan in Khan Market—which houses the Central Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement Directorate office, among others—a DCP began controlling traffic in a jam. After a while, an embarrassed traffic policeman rushed to relieve him.
Hell hath no fury like a senior in khaki being made to wait. A joint commissioner, infuriated that an inspector sauntered in to meet him 20 minutes late, made him wait for over two hours and He angrily told his junior to be punctual next time if he wants to retain his job.
