Bihar has decided to give police the stick for improving vigilance and bringing down crime in the state by withholding the salaries of 70 station house officers (SHOs) in Patna for zero arresting in major cases in their respective police stations in the last one week.The order was issued by Patna Range DIG Rajesh Kumar on Thursday, after he found that the cops had made no arrests in major cases such as murder, dacoity, loot, kidnapping, violence against women etc between November 23 and 28. Kumar found it as he reviewed the performance of all police stations, who were asked to update the headquarters about their activities every day since October 11.”Only three police stations in Patna – Kadamkuan, Phulwarisharif and Gaurichak – have reported arrests in serious cases during the last one week while the others have reported zero arrests. This shows their indiscipline, dereliction of duty, negligence and disobedience towards senior officials,” reads Kumar’s strongly worded order.Kumar said, “What sort of a policing is happening where not a single arrest has been made in serious cases in the entire week in a police station? The cops should be on their toes to investigate and arrest at least one accused (in serious crimes) every day.”A show cause notice has also been issued to 10 sub-divisional police officers (SDPOs) and deputy superintendent of police (DSPs), under whose jurisdiction the said police stations function. “They should reply within three days, why no arrests have been made in serious cases in their respective areas despite several reminders? They will invite disciplinary proceedings if they fail to respond within time,” Kumar said and added that the senior officials should also be proactive in making arrests.He also directed the Patna senior superintendent of police and city superintendents of police to ensure compliance of such orders from the Bihar Police Headquarters or other senior level and monitor it on a daily basis.The order aims at bettering crime control in the state, which seen increased law and order issues over the last few months, including murder of several businessmen and loots in the state capital. The Opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) has also cornered the government over it calling it ‘Mahamangalraaj’ of the NDA in Bihar.
