Paramjit Singh Gill, who will join as the new police commissioner of Ludhiana on Thursday, is in no mood to spare the criminals even if he has to adopt a not so mild approach.

It would be interesting to see how the new police commissioner, who was the inspector general of police (IGP) of Patiala range, would deal with the deteriorating law and order situation in the district.

Gill, who came became an IPS officer in 1991 after serving as a lecturer at a Patiala college from 1976 to 1985, has replaced Ishwar Singh, who was Ludhiana police commissioner since March 2012.

A postgraduate in economics, Gill said, “The role of public in a system is as important as that of police. Coordination among the police and public is very important to make a city crime free.”

While talking to HT over phone from Patiala, Gill said he left teaching profession because he wanted to serve the country by joining the police.

“I would follow a balanced approach in dealing with different types of crime in the city,” Gill claimed.

He said he would ensure team spirit among the officials of Ludhiana police and coordination with public.

Hailing from Mansa district of the state, Gill joined as Patiala IGP on March 24, 2012. His retirement is due in August 2015.
