Bengaluru: Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister Dr G. Parameshwar told top police officers on Wednesday to identify and detain foreign nationals who are overstaying.
At a crime review meeting, which was attended by the city police commissioner, additional commissioners of police, deputy commissioners of police, assistant commissioners of police and other top officers, Dr Parameshwar told the officers that the state government has written to the ministry of home affairs to deport 107 such foreign nationals who have been arrested and lodged in jails. Once the state gets a report, all of them would be deported, he said.
At the meeting, held at the city police commissioner T. Suneel Kumar's office, Dr Parameshwar instructed officers to invoke the Goonda Act against drug peddlers to curb the drug menace. This year, 169 narcotic drug-related cases have been registered, 298 accused, including 28 foreign nationals, have been arrested and 591 kg of banned drugs seized.
He told the officers to improve beat policing and to collect information on every resident in their jurisdiction as more crimes are being committed by unknown people. "Beat policemen should build contacts with residents and keep a watch on the activities of rowdies and history sheeters to bring drown crimes," he said.
Pulling up senior officers, he told DCP-rank officials to visit police stations. "I received a message that DCPs have not visited police stations even once in their division. This cannot be tolerated and they have to visit police stations at least once a month to hear the grievances of their subordinates. Assistant commissioners should pay regular visits and ensure proper beat policing. If any crimes occur in their jurisdictions, DCPs and ACPs too will be held responsible," he said.
Every senior officer should ensure that no untoward incidents occur during the Ganesha festival, from the time of installation of idols till their immersion. "Anti-social elements may try to whip up communal tensions, and stringent action should be taken against them," he said.
He said that the government is planning to give service revolvers to assistant sub-inspectors and instructed the city police commissioner to submit a report on the requirement.
