CRPF to take over security of high-security jails: DGP Gupta


CRPF to take over security of high-security jails: DGP Gupta

Our Correspondent

Ferozepur, March 15

Director General of Police (DGP) Dinkar Gupta today said the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) would take over the responsibility of “watch and ward” of high-security jails of the state after the General Election.

He was here to preside over a meeting pertaining to law and order and the functioning of the STF in the region. He said earlier, it had been planned that the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) would be deployed to man the security of jails in the state but the proposal did not materialise. He said now the plan to deploy the CRPF to guard jails which had lodged dreaded criminals and gangsters had been finalised.

He said the Police Department had identified 124 sensitive police stations in drug-affected areas of the state, including nine in Ferozepur and four in Fazilka. He said the DSP and SHO concerned of these police stations were being sensitised to ensure that the menace did not spread its tentacles and is curbed soon. He claimed the STF set up to prevent drug trafficking in the state had been successful in putting brakes both on the supply and consumption of the same.

The DGP said the police were keeping a hawk's eye on gangsters in Ferozepur and Fazilka districts, which share their boundaries with Pakistan and inter-state borders with Rajasthan.

ADGPs Ishwar Singh and Gurpreet Kaur Deo; MS Chinna, Praveen Sinha, both IGs; Sandeep Goel, SSP; Deepak Hilori, SSP; were among others present on the occasion.
