New DGP hits the ground run­ning

The New Indian Express - - INDIA -

Bi­har’s newly ap­pointed po­lice chief Guptesh­war Pandey has sent a chill down the spine of hard­core crim­i­nals and cor­rupt po­lice­men. The 1987-batch IPS of­fi­cer, known for his suc­cess­ful ex­per­i­ments in com­mu­nity polic­ing, has sent stern mes­sages that he would not spare any­one break­ing the law. Nine days into his new job, he made a sur­prise mid­night in­spec­tion of two po­lice sta­tions in Patna and placed six cops, in­clud­ing the two sta­tion house of­fi­cers, un­der sus­pen­sion for dere­lic­tion of duty. “Even if a cop, he may be a con­sta­ble or an SP, is found slack or cor­rupt, they will face ac­tion,” said Pandey, who also held a Face­book Live ses­sion to in­ter­act with both com­mon peo­ple and po­lice­men.
