HYDERABAD: Police officials should register complaints from anyone who approaches a police station seeking help and investigate the case in a proper way, retired director-general of police MV Bhaskar Rao has said.

Delivering the 16th KS Vyas memorial lecture on ‘Changing Societal Needs - Police Response’ held at the AP Police Academy (APPA) here on Friday, he said the police department did not have a good image because some of its personnel were hand-in-glove with selfish politicians. As such, policemen were getting involved in corruption and scams, he noted and called upon trainee SIs and DSPs to work with commitment.

Recalling his association with Vyas, APPA director N Sambasiva Rao said Vyas, the founder of anti-Naxalite force, Greyhounds, had brought about several reforms in policing.

“I was trained under the guidance of KS Vyas. He was our inspiration and our hero in the profession,” he said.

Vyas was shot dead by extremists 18 years ago at the LB Stadium here while he was serving as joint director of APPA.  

Aruna Vyas, his widow, said Vyas had made a mark in his profession as a good police officer and said she was proud of her late husband.

Additional director of APPA Rajiv Trivedi and Director general of Disaster Response and Fire services Vivek Dube also spoke. Earlier in the day, DGP V Dinesh Reddy garlanded the statue of Vyas.
