Chandigarh:It seems the Chandigarh Police have lost trust over its own police post staff while checking over the gambling, NDPS and illegal liquor cases. Special units have been formed by the UT police for checking the concerned crime in the city.
According to the police sources, special units including officials of
Crime Branch, CID, Operation Cell and staff from police posts headed by Sub Inspectors have been formed to keep vigil over the illegal supply of contraband, gambling in residential areas
and illegal country made liquor trade.
The special units have been formed following a special drive carried
out by the Chandigarh Police aiming to uproot the illegal drug and liquor trade in the city. However, not officially assigning the local police staff of police posts for the concerned checking, the UT Police have formed special units headed by SIs who are picked from the police posts themselves.
A UT Police cop revealed on the condition of anonymity that where he should have been made in-charge of the special unit in his area to check the illegal trade of contraband and gambling, another cop of the similar rank has been made the in-charge for the checking in my area.
The police sources
said that special teams have been formed as complaints have been received
from the local residents of the city that the illegal trade of liquor and contraband and gambling have
been going on under the guidance of the police post staff. Following which the Chandigarh Police have planned to conduct a
special drive under special units.
