The Hyderabad Police Commissioner, C V Anand, recently held a video conference with all SHOs, patrol car, blue collar staff officers and above rank officers, as well as crucial wings to ensure the smooth conclusion of all festivals falling in the same month, including Islamic month Ramzan, Sri Ramanavami and Hanuman Jayanthi. The Commissioner stressed on crowd monitoring and traffic management at religious places to avoid inconvenience to devotees and commuters. Officers were instructed to remain vigilant and enhance visible policing to render swift response. Joint inspections with other departments along the procession routes were also mandated.
During the meeting, SHOs and DIs were instructed to stretch beyond their working hours during the festive month. The Commissioner also stressed the need to keep a close tab on hate mongers and netizens who post blasphemous or instigating posts on social media. Filing cases and expediting issuance of notices to the perpetrators were the directives given.
He also instructed all officers to minimize delays in the movement of processions and monitor them closely. The Commissioner added, “Bind over all communal rowdies, suspects sector wise and police station wise. Revive peace committees and on-board members who have genuine intent to serve the community.”
