Ideal policing will remain a pipe dream if the functioning at police stations does not improve, Uttar Pradesh police chief Sulkhan Singh said.

Uttar Pradesh police chief Sulkhan Singh in a letter asked the cops to improve their style of functioning and look for an image makeover, an official said on Wednesday.

Ideal policing will remain a pipe dream if the functioning at police stations does not improve, Singh wrote to the force.

He said, “Time has come to make the people feel that the police force was working for them and that policing in its best form was available for them.”

Singh also directed officials to ensure justice without bias or prejudice was given to the aggrieved and that crimes were registered.

“Do not under any circumstances not register complaints for fear of its reflection on the crime graph,” the DGP said in his letter.

Sulkhan Singh was appointed Uttar Pradesh’s top police man last month by chief minister Yogi Adityanath.
