Van­dal­ism at rose fest: 2 cops to face in­quiry

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - IN & AROUND -

CHANDI­GARH: A de­part­men­tal in­quiry has been rec­om­mended against a head con­sta­ble posted with the Po­lice Con­trol Room (PCR) along with as­sis­tant sub-in­spec­tor Jaswant Singh posted at the Sec­tor-17 po­lice sta­tion into the in­ci­dent per­tain­ing to van­dal­ism at Rose Gar­den dur­ing the Rose Fes­ti­val. The po­lice have found that the cops adopted lax at­ti­tude when young­sters were de­stroy­ing the statues. DSP Kamaldeep had con­ducted the in­quiry and sub­mit­ted the re­port to SSP Nau­ni­hal Singh. The con­sta­ble has been found guilty for not send­ing a PCR gypsy to the spot af­ter re­ceiv­ing in­for­ma­tion. On the other hand, the role of ASI Jaswant Singh was not up to the mark, as he did not reach the spot even though he was posted at the fest. The po­lice was re­ported about the dam­age to statues and pots on dis­play at the three-day fes­ti­val. A com­plaint was lodged with the po­lice af­ter three statues, flow­er­pots and some top­i­ary were found dam­aged.
