New Delhi, April 24: Three IPS officials, including one from Rajasthan, were on Tuesday arrested by Gujarat Police on a charge of murder for their alleged role in the death of a man in a fake encounter here in 2005.

Those arrested are Inspector General (border range) D G Vanzara, Superintendent of Police Rajkumar Pandayan of the state intelligence wing, and M N Dinesh, the SP of Rajasthan's Alwar district.

The arrests were made in connection with the death of Sohrabuddin Sheikh, allegedly killed in a gun battle here on November 26, 2005 during a joint operation by Gujarat's Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) and Rajasthan Police.

Vanzara and Pandayan were called to the Gujarat police chief's office and arrested in the DGP's presence, senior state intelligence wing official Sudhir Sinha told PTI.
  Sinha said they were arrested "on the charge of murder".

Dinesh, who hails from Karnataka, was in Ahmedabad in connection with the probe into the killing and was also arrested. Rajasthan's personnel department will decide the future course of action against him, an official in Jaipur said.

Sheikh's wife Kausar Bano has been missing since the time of his death.

The Gujarat government had informed the Supreme Court on March 23 this year that the encounter in which Sheikh was killed was fake. The admission came in response to a petition filed in the apex court by Sheikh's brother Rubabuddin.

Vanzara was chief of the ATS at the time of Sheikh's killing while Pandayan was his deputy.

Sheikh's brother Shahabuddin said: "I am very happy as I have got justice and our efforts have paid off finally. I hope that at least they (police officials) get hanged."

Former Gujarat Police commissioner M M Mehta said he was "not at all surprised" that the three officials had been found to be "involved in a fake encounter".

"Police encounters whether in Gujarat or elsewhere in the country have always been viewed suspiciously by the people, by the media and by the judiciary...These officers or anybody else involved in a fake encounter is definitely going to be treated on the charge of murder," he said.<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

A decade ago, film made him a hero

AHMEDABAD: "This is Vanzara's baton. If you promptly speak up, you'll be spared. If you fail to open your mouth, you've had it."

This is no DIG of police, D G Vanzara, threatening a gangster or a terrorist to start singing like a canary. It is his younger brother K G Vanzara, an officer in the social welfare department, playing a no-nonsense cop in Gujarati film Rasiya Vaalam (Colourful Lover).

Incidentally, he plays the role of 'Inspector D G Vanzara' in the film which hit the cinema halls almost a decade ago. Long before DG became a phenomenon in Gujarat, his brother, who bears a remarkable similarity to him, had immortalised him on celluloid as a tough cop.

In the movie, KG not only borrowed his brother's name but also his looks and mannerisms.

If DG, now behind bars for the fake encounter of Sohrabuddin, swore by desh bhakti, K G swore by Satyamev Jayte in the film. KG was a personal assistant to former minister Upendra Trivedi (considered Dilip Kumar of Gujarati film industry), who reportedly introduced him to film producers.

Media's completely forgotten about this one I guess.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Encounter killings have been an instrument of state policy right from the day of independence. <b>The first ordered killings by the state took place in the Telangana region of the erstwhile Hyderabad state within months of independence when the Indian Army and the state police gunned down hundreds of persons on the pretext that they were insurgents intent on overthrowing the new government and installing the dictatorship of the proletariat. </b>This indeed was the official line of the Communist Party of India then, championed by its General Secretary, BT Ranadive. Poor Ranadive, who had a reputation of being a bit of a Stalinist, had the plug pulled from underneath when Josef Stalin himself decided that the insurgency was not viable and was the worse kind of adventurism, and hence refused to support it. It is said that when Telangana was pointed out to Stalin on a map, he just said that it had no coast line and supplying it with arms and military material was impossible. We know that that was not true. The Australian aviator Sidney Cotton supplied the Razakars in Hyderabad with Pakistani arms by air. Cotton was a former officer of the British Secret Intelligence Service who got hold of a fleet of retired RAF Lancaster bombers for his gun running. This tells us a bit about British intentions also. Like the Communist rebels, many Razakars were terminated with extreme prejudice. The policy of the state being the judge and executioner emanated from the office of Sardar Patel, India’s first home minister and the role model for many a home minister after that.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Custodial killings were the norm and the then Chief Minister of West Bengal, Siddhartha Shankar Ray, a reputed barrister thus earned his spurs to high national office as a result. In 1966, the Gond people in Bastar revolted against the corrupt and exploitative ways of the Madhya Pradesh Congress government of DP Mishra. Pandit DP Mishra, a Sanskrit scholar of some repute, had few qualms in unleashing the police on the Adivasis who congregated in Jagdalpur to pay the customary Dussera homage to their Raja, Pravinchandra Bhanjdeo. Not only did the MP police kill scores of Adivasis, but they also shot down the Raja in cold blood. Soon after this incident, central forces were deployed in Bastar and one got a first hand look at the havoc they wrought.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->During the Emergency, Sanjay Gandhi’s handpicked Chief Minister of UP, VP Singh, resorted to extra-legal killings in the districts bordering MP apparently to rid the state of a reign of terror unleashed by dacoits.

The dacoit Chabiram, who had the reputation of being a bit of a Robin Hood, was killed in VP Singh’s retaliation. The seeds of Singh's continuing conflict with Mulayam Singh Yadav were sown here.

Police to SC: TV fanned Gurjjar flames, old footage called ‘live’
Tannu SharmaPosted online: Saturday, June 16, 2007 at 0000 hrs Print EmailBANDH : SC asks amicus curiae to look at TV coverage; Rajasthan DGP cites US media post- 9/11 as model
NEW DELHI, JUNE 15: Responding to the wrath of the Supreme Court, which called disruption and violence following the Gurjjar agitation a “national shame,” state police chiefs have said that television news channels and their coverage was to blame.

“The manner of telecast by 24X7 news channels perhaps was a contributing factor in the wide spread of violence to places beyond those at which blockade call was given,” A S Gill, Director General of Police (DGP), Rajasthan said in his affidavit filed before the apex court today.

In his affidavit that detailed the events during the weeklong agitation by Gurjjars in the state seeking inclusion in the Scheduled Tribes (ST) category, the DGP even cited the response of US media after the 9/11 tragedy as a role model for what he considered responsible behaviour. “In the aftermath of the 9/11 World Trade Center tragedy, the US electronic media refrained from telecasting images of any dead body,” the DGP pointed out.

He asked the court to take a serious view of the issue “relating to the impact, effect and ethics of the local and national media with reference to these events and incidents” and he underlined: “The telecast did not in any manner contribute in bringing about peace, harmony and amicable relationship between the citizens and the Government.”

For the record, the Rajasthan police claimed to have carried out 2,081 preventive arrests and registered 352 FIRs under various sections of IPC and Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, 1984. Until date, 265 accused are in jail and 68 are on bail, the affidavit said.

Besides Rajasthan, police chiefs of UP, Haryana and Delhi were also asked to respond. The hearing is scheduled for June 18.

While appointing senior advocate Rajiv Dhawan as amicus curiae, the Court also directed him to consider the footage of news coverage on the agitation from various TV channels.

In their affidavit, the Delhi Police, too, blamed media coverage saying, “In some places, protesters hitherto peaceful became belligerent and tried to resort to violence on seeing the electronic media. It would not be out of place to mention that some of the electronic channels have given highly exaggerated and distorted version of the events,” H M Meena, DCP Headquarters, said in the affidavit.

Although the DCP admitted some major incidents of violence were reported on June 4, the day of the bandh, he said that even though the situation was quite normal after 12.30 pm, “the same picture of violence was being shown with a caption ‘Live’.”

Besides, all the states filed their Action Taken Report (ATR) on the cases registered and people arrested. Haryana DGP R S Dalal said that nine FIRs were registered in five districts of the state.

"I am a person who has always stood up against injustice and I will continue to do so," Bedi said.

The displeasure of Bedi, a 1972 batch IPS officer of the union territory cadre, came to the fore after the Union Home Ministry cleared the name of Dadwal, a 1974 batch IPS officer, for the post of Delhi Police Commissioner and sent it to Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna, who issued the order

"Dadwal has some time with him. I am left with two years while he has four-five years. I could have finished my tenure and he could have taken over then. I don’t understand this impatience," she said. "Some people have decided to be unfair, it is as simple as that," she said. "To the best of my knowledge, I have an outstanding record and seniority. Both seniority and record have been given a go-by...I did not indulge in lobbying. I did not look for patronage or relationships," she said.

If instead of picking some items from boutiques, she could have lifted the whole boutique and she could have gone scott free and made a presidential candidate as long as she groveled at the feet of parivar on 10 Janpath.

These charges against mother are pretty lame. They even tried that against Jaya Bacchan's (Bahaduri) mom a few months ago on some real estate deal.

Kiran Bedi was on ZeeNews yesterday and stated that there's no point complaining to govt against shoddy treatment since they are the ones who have done this. Her last resort is President of India. Though not optimistic, I'd say she should push her claim and force Prathibha to take a stand.

<b>Maya sacks 7,400 more policemen</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Continuing its crackdown on recruitment of police personnel during the Mulayam Singh Yadav regime, the Mayawati Government on Sunday sacked 7,400 more policemen and suspended seven senior IPS officers for alleged irregularities in the selection process.

<b>Besides the seven IPS officers, including an Additional Director General of Police and two IGPs, 75 Provincial Police Service (PPS) officers were suspended.

The suspended IPS officers were ADGP VK Bhalla, IGPs AD Mishra and KK Saxena, DIGs VK Agarwal, Prabhat Kumar and Malkhan Singh Yadav and SP GK Goswami, Principal Secretary (Home) JN Chamber told reporters here. So far, 25 IPS officers have been placed under suspension.</b>

In connection with recruitment in Police Wireless Radio, a case against Jitendra Pandey, the owner of Cebutron Computers, has also been registered as copies were checked there.

Briefing mediapersons here at the Media Centre here, Principal Secretary, Home, JN Chamber said that they had annulled the selections made by the recruitment boards in Etah (370 constables), Ballia (400 PAC jawans), Bulandshahr (400 constables), Kanpur Dehat (275 constables), Moradabad (600 constables), Gonda (275 constables), Ghaziabad (600 constables), Jhansi (600 constables), Moradabad (350 PAC jawans), Ghaziabad (374 constables), Moradabad (374 constables), Budaun (370 constables), Gorakhpur (400 PAC jawans), Bareilly (350 PAC jawans), Etah (399 PAC jawans) and 1228 candidates in the Police Radio Headquarters on separate posts.

Meanwhile, <b>the chairman of the investigating committee, Shailja Kant Mishra claimed that a prominent leader of the previous government played a decisive role in selection of candidates.</b>

He said that in selection at Police Wireless Radio, the leader camped in the Wireless Headquarters and forced Board members to declare the final list prepared by him. Shaija Kant added that some female candidates were even exploited by the political leader in connivance with senior police officers.

He said that in telecom, officers gave the contract for checking and preparing the final results to a private organisation -- Cebutron Computers -- and no records were kept with them. Interestingly, even the computer centre had destroyed the records.

<b>Shailja Kant further said that cuttings, over-writing and thousands of copies were found in which the handwriting of candidates did not match with the one on the answer sheets.</b>

He said that many candidates who almost got full marks were disqualified and the ones who had left the answer sheets blank were selected. He said that in many places, over 2,000 candidates were interviewed in a single day.

Shailja Kant concluded that the probe so far pointed that it was not just the Boards, but many others occupying high offices, who were involved in the scam.

What is going on here? She is setting up a wrong example. Next election new admin will fire new recruits, at the end these poor cops and their family will suffer.

How they are able to verify handwriting within 2 months? New admin want to place there own cops for corruption and to rig election.
Why to suspend IPS officers from other states?
I think she will see revolt from IPS cadre.
Pioneer, Op-Ed 2 October 2007

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Crime and police </b>
RD Kewalramani proposes an agenda for police reforms
In India, the police force is quite understaffed. The UN norm is 222 policemen per one lakh people; In European countries, it's between 250 and 450. In India, it is 122; in Bihar, it's 58; in Andhra Pradesh, it's 98.

In Delhi, there are about 125 police stations. In each magistrate court, in whose jurisdiction one or more police stations lie, has two or more policemen to produce the accused, prepare remand or bail papers, prepare summons and warrants, check the attendance of witnesses and so on.

<b>There is little corruption in the armed constabulary that constitutes 70 per cent of the local force and is employed in guard and escort duties. </b>To say as such that police is wholly corrupt is wrong.

There should be no financial constraint in having an efficient and effective police force. Providing the local thana with sophisticated arms is not required. Only Anti-Terrorist Squads (ATS) need modern weapons and allied equipment.

The Dharma Vira Commission gave many valuable suggestions to improve the police force more than 25 years ago, but our politicians have little time for public security or inclination to keep criminals under check. Most of the recommendations of the commission have, therefore, been ignored.

We do not have district jails in many districts. One big jail is Tihar in Delhi; it houses under-trials in courts around Delhi -- Tis Hazari, Rohini, Karkardooma, India Gate and Saket. There are nine district magistrates, one each for the nine districts, but there is only one jail. To aggravate the problem, many States have formed new revenue districts without police lines, jails, and treasuries.

Police's special units, with the staff in plain clothes, are put into operation to check gambling, prostitution, illegal sale of narcotics, and liquor law violations. Such units need to be strengthened.

The police need quick and efficient services of experts in handwriting, blood and semen samples recovered from the scene of crime. The police deal with dead bodies -- many of them unclaimed -- and produce them before medical officers for post-mortem examinations.

<b>Many of our criminal justice laws are out of date. The penal code was enacted in 1860, the Evidence Act in 1872. The Police Act is of 1861. Any confession before a police officer is not admissible in courts of law. This is like carrying the legacy of distrust during the British rule.</b>

It costs several lakhs of rupees to train our Armymen and policemen. Training an IPS officer -- there are about 3,000 such officers in the country -- is also very costly. But these officers are demotivated on seeing the low level of morality of politicians.

The Government should not only implement the Dharma Vira Committee recommendations but also seriously consider:
  • Giving the power of investigation to constables with over five years service and proficiency in local language,

    Relieving the police of service of summons and warrants - let the civilian staff of courts perform these jobs; the police will then have more time to catch thieves, robbers, pickpockets, car lifters, etc,

    Withdrawing armed guards from the residences of VIPs and officers; this work may be outsourced to private security agencies,

    Banning the creation of new districts or police stations in various states and union territories for five years.
<b>Women in police force unknown entity: Kiran Bedi</b><!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->She made a mark as the country's first IPS officer. And bidding the police service adieu, Kiran Bedi [Images] lamented that her sisters in the force continued to be an unknown entity.

"Women are still an unknown entity in the force. They remain anonymous and the government thinks they are unpredictable," Bedi, who ended her 37-year-old eventful career in the police force on Wednesday, said.

Bedi had alleged in July, when she was overlooked for the post of Delhi police commissioner, that the government was biased towards women in the police force.

She was relieved of her duties on Wednesday after the government accepted her one-and-half month-old application for voluntary retirement.

Bedi was also critical of the "negative" political interference in policing, saying it was affecting the efficiency of the police force in the country.

"There are no debates in the country about the police and its reforms. We had a number of police commissions. What did they achieve? Have you done any audit? There are no police officers who speak out against this and there is nobody to speak for policemen. This is despite the best being there in the service," she said.

<b>On criticism that she was the "most pampered" officer, she said, "If I was a pampered officer, I would not have spent four years in the training department. Not a single pampered officer goes to Tihar."</b> <!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->

<b>Bedi, who has been an Asian Tennis champion</b>, said she imbibed many a thing from the game.

"Tennis was never my goal. But it taught me what books did not. I travelled with books. I attended exams after my matches. My priority was something else," Bedi said, adding she knew that the game has a shelf life.

She was ready to acknowledge what tennis taught her. "It taught me how to manage stress and time, what to eat, when to sleep, how to exercise and many other things."

She said her travel to various places in the country in general women compartments of trains made her come close to realities of life.

Asked what she did after receiving <b>the relieving letter from the home ministry on Christmas eve, Bedi said she went to a temple to say, "God, Thank you and now take care of me."</b><!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
Delhi Police gets GPS for better tracking

Troubled by allegations of misuse of police vehicle and not reaching at crime scenes on time, Delhi Police has decided to fix high-tech global positioning system (GPS) on its 1,500 field vehicles.

This technology will help the police to track the movement of all vehicles.

Delhi Police also proposes to introduce "scratch pads" on police control room (PCR) vans, replacing the use of keyboard for writing messages by telephone operator to wireless operator.

"The first phase for installation of GPS device is over. We have installed high-technology devices in 450 PCR vans for their wireless uplink with the central command room. These devices will ensure round-the-clock monitoring of the vans" whereabouts through a digitised city map and also facilitate inter-connectivity of vans for proper coordination among them,” Delhi Police spokesman Rajan Bhagat told Business Standard.

The contract for installation of GPS in police vehicles has been awarded to Indian IT major HCL for Rs 4.8 crore.

A special control room will also be set up at the police headquarters to monitor these vehicles.

The system, officials said, would also check any misuse of any official vehicle. "We would be able to know if the staff is misusing a vehicle or not patrolling in the specified areas," an official added.

However, Bhagat refuted the reports of misuse of police vehicles for personal use by the officials.

He said, "It is just a notion in the public. But if we receive any complain regarding that, Delhi Police will take strict action against the person found guilty."

Kiran Bedi is wrong here, Women police are a respected part of police forces in every state in the country. Tamil nadu has a all-woman commando unit and many all-woman police stations have been opened in TN. A woman officer was even the incharge of Chennai Law&Order Branch. I fail to see why Kiran tries to portray a negative image about women police officers.
Regarding her not getting promoted it is due to political reasons. Police officers seen as close to the ruling party get promoted to sensitive posts during congress rule. The gender has nothing to do with this.

Books have been written on the contribution of women police officers to the society.
