Rs.1-crore inter-state police link coming soon

By Our Staff Reporter

PONDICHERRY, AUG. 12. A Rs. 1 crore POLNET (Police Network) system will be introduced soon in Pondicherry linking it with police stations in metropolitan cities across the country for speedy communication and investigation of inter-State crimes, Senior Superintendent of Police (Law and Order), Sunil Garg has said.

He told newsmen here today he said that in the first phase of modernisation, the department had completed the process of computerisation and installation of information kiosks at various points, web cameras and supply of photocopiers to all police stations. The next stage would see installation of the Wide Area Network (WAN) to interlink police stations within the Union Territory for exchange of information, assessment of investigation status and other detection related details.

The names and particulars of senior citizens (for all practical purposes those above 50 years are treated as senior citizens by the department) were being finalised. This was to ensure that the area police regularly contacted elderly people living alone.

Mr. Garg said that a 20-member team of IPS officers attached to the National Police Academy, Hyderabad were on a two-day visit to Pondicherry under the `Bharath Darshan' programme. They were briefed on the system of policing here.

Robber gangs nabbed

Five persons attached to two robber gangs operating in Villianoor and Mudaliarpet areas near Pondicherry were arrested on Wednesday with police intensifying patrolling of the areas for some days now.

The Police department has introduced a new scheme to induct people on an ad hoc basis in the staff starved police stations to take up patrolling work.

In Mudaliarpet police station, an additional eight police constables on its rolls to function in tandem with the available strength there had resulted in the arrest of the two robber gangs yesterday.

The arrested have been identified as N. Udhayan alias Aadhavan of Moolakulam, S. Elangovan of Villianoor, K.Ramesh alias Manikandan of Tiruvalluvar Nagar, C. Kasinathan of Kanuvapet and A Prakash of Muthirapalayam. Police recovered gold jewellery weighing 60 sovereigns and silver articles, a television set and a CD player allegedly stolen by the gangs either at Villianoor or Mudaliarpet. The value of the stolen properties was put at Rs 2.2 lakhs.
