Patna: DGP holds emergency meeting following indiscipline in police force

Sudden ruckus among the police force in Patna looks alarming for the Police department in following which the top brass of the cop called a meeting headed by Director-General of Police KS Dwivedi in the police headquarter on Friday. The meeting lasted for an hour in which DGP expressed concern over increasing incidents of indiscipline in the force.

“The Director-General of Police KS Dwivedi has asked his subordinates to devise ways to check recurrence of such incidents,” said the IPS officer on the condition of anonymity.

New Police Line witnessed violence on Friday and a similar incident on the campus of the Bihar Military Police (BMP) on Wednesday following the alleged molestation of a female trainee cop by an inspector-rank officer in the latter’s office. In both incidents, trainee women constables were involved.

“The way these trainee female constables are behaving with their seniors is not good for the police force. They are very arrogant and should be dealt with an iron hand,” said a former DGP, again on the condition of anonymity.

 “The violent protest by the female cops has caused embarrassment to the Bihar police and also maligned their image. They are least bothered about their training,” said a superintendent of the police-rank officer, who had earlier served as commandant of the BMP’s woman battalion stationed at Sasaram in Rohtas district.

Another commandant said that the trainee constables were being asked to perform their duty like regular cops. “That is why they demand to leave on par with regular cops,” the commandant said.

The commandant pointed out that the trainee women constables are granted two days’ leave a year apart from special leave every 20 days.

“Their training schedule is very hard. That is why many women constables fall unconscious at the parade ground every day,” he revealed.

On the other hand, a male constable is entitled to 16 days’ casual leave and 20 days’ compensatory paid leave, besides medical leave. The number of women constables and sub-inspectors has increased in the state police force due to 35 per cent reservation for women.
