Identify anti-social elements in migrant camps: Police commissioner to DCsP

New Delhi: The Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik directed Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCsP) to conduct verification of the residential camps of the migrant population and identify the anti-social elements.

The police chief also told senior officers to keep a tab on undesirable visitors in servant quarters area.

Police sources told Millennium Post that a meeting was held at police headquarters (PHQ) in September. It was headed by top cop.

While discussing on the topic related to verification of flouting/migrant population, Commissioner told other senior officers that this is an area on which district DCsP should work with a sustained plan of action.

Intensive verification should be done in residential camps of the migrant population to identify anti-social elements.

"District DCsP should start a drive-in unauthorised colonies/JJ clusters of their areas for meaningful verification," the Police Chief told officers.

Sources said that the CP further directed that this drive should also be started in respect of undesirable visitors to the servants quarters of colonies.

Meanwhile, the top cop also discussed on imparting deterrence to police patrolling. Sources added that CP directed officers that district DCsP should devise and monitor a system in which motorcycle patrols go to the crowded areas and question persons moving under suspicious circumstances.

"Bi-cycle patrols should go to the parks and interact with the people about their grievances, as a confidence-building measure, particularly when it comes to women and senior citizens who visit parks," the top cop told their officers.

According to data, city police have taken action against more than 38,000 anti-social elements in the current year.

Replicating "Nazuk" scheme in other districts

Amulya Patnaik directed that the district DCsP should choose a colony, particularly where the cases of POCSO Act are high, in their districts and replicate "Naazuk" scheme there.

The purpose behind "Naazuk" is to generate awareness about child sexual abuse particularly crimes against children of the smaller age group. The scheme was launched as a pilot project from Bharat Nagar area of North West district.
