How serious are our police officials about the electoral procedure? On Saturday a number of police officers were caught texting and facebooking on their smartphones during a crucial election procedure briefing at Bachat Bhawan at Mini Secretariat here.

IPS officer Dhanpreet Kaur, senior superintendent of police (SSP), Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar, was briefing about the duties of the police officers during Lok Sabha elections.

She was also briefing about the arrangements that the police have to make during elections and distribution of forces at polling stations.

DIRTY ACT CAUGHT ON CAMERA! Policemen caught texting, facebooking during crucial meeting.

SSPs of other districts and other senior officers were participating in the meeting, but instead of listening to the instructions they were busy chatting and updating status, photographs on Facebook and commenting on posts of others.

It is pertinent to mention here that few months ago, government doctors were caught texting and chatting on mobile phones during a meeting convened by deputy commissioner. Later, the DC had sought explanations from the doctors.
