DGP: 40 CPMF com­pa­nies to man state dur­ing polls

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Uttarpradesh -

LUC­KNOW: As many as 40 com­pa­nies of cen­tral para-mil­i­tary forces (CPMF) have been sanc­tioned to the UP po­lice dur­ing the lo­cal bod­ies’ elec­tions but they will not be de­ployed on elec­tion du­ties. They will be con­trol­ling law and order, com­mu­nal ten­sions and riot like sit­u­a­tions dur­ing this pe­riod.

“As the state po­lice force like civil po­lice, provin­cial armed con­stab­u­lary and home guards will be en­tirely de­ployed for elec­tion du­ties, the CPMF pro­vided by the cen­tral will do other du­ties,” said Anand Ku­mar, ad­di­tional di­rec­tor gen­eral (ADG) of po­lice, Law and Order, while ad­dress­ing me­dia.

He said the CPMF would be made avail­able from Novem­ber 20 to De­cem­ber 5. The ADG said at least 1423 check posts and bar­ri­ers had come up on in­ter­na­tional, in­ter-state and in­ter dis­tricts bor­ders to check cor­rupt prac­tices dur­ing the elec­tions.
