VISAKHAPATNAM: Superintendent of Police Akun Sabharwal issued certain guidelines to the police personnel and gold merchants of Narsipatnam town to end the impasse between the two groups.‘Illegal recoveries’
The gold merchants of Narsipatnam have been protesting for the past one week alleging that the police have been resorting to illegal recoveries from them.
A bandh was also organised on Monday in this regard.
The guidelines issued by Dr. Sabharwal include: filing of the inquest report at the shop where recovery was shown and handing over a copy of the report to the shop owner, issue of a receipt by the police official concerned for the gold ornaments recovered from the shop, the merchants shouldn’t be taken into custody on the basis of mere suspicion, the merchants should, however, note that they were liable for punishment under Section 411 of Cr. P.C. for purchase of stolen gold ornaments, the recovered ornaments should be produced in court within 24 hours, the shop owner should invariably note the details of the seller when purchasing ornaments and the local merchants could form into an association and issue identity cards to their members for easy identification of unscrupulous traders.
He called upon both the police and the gold merchants to observe the above guidelines to prevent misgivings in future.
