Not only the common man, but even a senior Bihar Police officer is scared of the men in khaki.
Additional Director General Anand Shankar of the Crime Investigation Department (CID), in a letter to state police chief Ashish Ranjan Sinha, has said that "senior police officers would be beaten up by their subordinates inside their chambers if the Bihar Police Association and its office-bearers are not reined in".
Shankar expressed his apprehension after he had to transfer some constables allegedly under pressure from BPA president Jitendra Narain Singh on September 18.
While recommending the dissolution of the body, Shankar pointed out in the letter, which was received by Sinha on Tuesday, that the association's members raise "petty issues and threaten to create law and order problems if their demands are not conceded".
"I have considered all aspects before writing this letter. In fact, I have waited for long before writing the letter since a senior police officer had assured me that Singh was willing to apologise. But this did not happen," Shankar said.
"In fact, the subsequent action of the office-bearers was more abrasive and instead of apologising, Singh started spreading canards against me," Shankar said.
Expressing surprise at the state police headquarters silence on an earlier incident in which Singh allegedly misbehaved with a commandant of Bihar Military Police, Shankar said, "It is unpleasant".
