No one can take law into their hands: UP top cop

Lucknow: No one should be allowed to take the law into their hands irrespective of their background, Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police Sulkhan Singh today said.

“Vigilantes taking up issues related to cow or love affairs should not be allowed to take law in their hands.

Strict action should be initiated if any such case comes to fore,” Singh said while addressing district police through video conferencing here.

The DGP asked district police chiefs to issue standing orders highlighting do’s and don’ts on anti-Romeo squads.

“Those caught by the squads should not be sent to jails, instead their parents should be called and their counselling be done,” he said.

He said law and order is priority of the government and no one should be allowed to block roads and road discipline should be maintained.

“There should be no laxity in listing FIRs and jurisdiction disputes should be avoided,” the DGP said.

This was the first meeting of the DGP with officers after assuming charge as state police chief.
