BANGALORE: Advising police and advocates to amicably solve issues between them and not blow them out of proportion, City Police Commissioner M N Reddi said they are responsible for strengthening democracy.
The commissioner met advocates at the City Civil Court premises on Tuesday.
On Goonda Act being invoked in many cases, Reddi said, “There have been incidents of real estate agents grabbing land. If there has been a forced illegal eviction, then the police may impose Goonda Act and detain the culprits”.
The commissioner stressed that there is no place for anti-social elements in society. Refuting allegations of insensitive handling of rape cases, Reddi clarified that the police are proactive in reacting to the situation and investigating sex crimes.
Maintaining that his department is open to suggestions, Reddi asked the advocates to approach him personally if police officials are causing them problems.
