The newly-appointed senior superintendent of Police of Noida, Rajeev Sabharwal, who took charge of the district on Thursday said redressal of public grievances and improving the image of Noida Police that was tarnished after the Nithari episode would be his priority.
Sabarwal replaces RKS Rathore who was transferred out of Noida after a high-level enquiry committee of Uttar Pradesh government indicted him for ignoring the complains of the parents of Nithari victims who had gone missing.
The victims' skeletal remains were recovered from a drain outside accused Mohinder Singh Pandher's house in Sector 31. Pandher's servant, Surinder Koli, is the second accused in the case.
SSP Sabharwal told mediamen that all districts have different set of policing according to the geographical and population pattern. "I appeal the residents to approach me freely. I am completely accessible to them and I will try to solve their complaint at the earliest. They can treat me like a friend and should not hesitate to approach me," said Sabharwal.
Regarding Nithari case, he promised to extend full support to CBI in investigations.
"All cases, however, small it may be, would be dealt seriously and properly investigated. Each police station will have separate cells for complaints and pubic grievance redressal and another cell for investigation. Slackness in duty will not be tolerated," he added.
