Need to eliminate political pressure and change in policing
The police, engaged in the protection of the people, need to work openly on their own. There should also be a change in the rules made during the British era. There is a lot of political pressure on the police which needs to be removed. The transfer-posting game of politicians in the police department has to stop.
Former IPS Colonel Singh, who led the Batla House encounter, said this. Colonel Singh, an alumnus of the institute, who came to the foundation day celebrations of IIT, did his BTech in computer science in the year 1981. He came to the institute after 40 years.
He said that the police will have to be technically strong. The Delhi Police broke the back of the Indian Mujahideen network in the Batla House encounter. There was a lot of politics after the incident. He said that if the cases increase in the police station, then it is considered as an increase of crime. However, it can also be understood in such a way that the police is working diligently for the common man.
