In a bid to ensure foolproof security arrangements at all the Judicial Complexes, Punjab Police on Tuesday conducted a special checking at District and Sub-Divisional Courts across the state to make sure that Door Frame Metal Detector (DFMDs), Closed-Circuit Television (CCTVs) cameras and other security equipments installed are in working condition.
The checking was conducted from 11am to 3pm simultaneously in all the 28 Police districts of the state on the directions of Director General of Police (DGP) Punjab Gaurav Yadav. The CPs/SSPs were directed to personally monitor this operation and make sufficient number of Police teams to carry out checking.
Special DGP Law and Order Arpit Shukla said that Police teams under the supervision of SPs/DSPs carried out checking at around 68 Courts across the state.
Apart from reviewing security arrangements, he said that Police teams have also frisked 1796 suspicious people found roaming around the court complexes and also checked 1768 vehicles.
He said that the purpose to carry out this checking was to ensure foolproof security arrangements at Judicial complexes in the state to tighten noose around the anti-social elements.
“We have also directed CPs/SSPs to hold courtesy meetings with Bar associations in the next three days,” said the Special DGP, while terming this move as part of the ongoing drive to make Punjab a safe and secure.
Meanwhile, CPs/SSPs are also directed to increase Police Patrolling around such vulnerable places to intensify surveillance on anti-social elements.
