Director general of police (DGP) Punjab Suresh Arora said that existence of Punjab Control of Organised Crime Act (PCOCA) is to rein in hardcore criminals and gangsters across the state, on Saturday.

DGP Arora was here to review the special nakas laid across river bridges in Jalandhar. He also applauded the initiative of inspector general (IG) Arpit Shukla.

Describing the PCOCA as more instrumental in curbing the criminal activities, he said that with the imposition of PCOCA, the criminals’ conviction rate will increase. He said after PCOCA’s implementation, the criminals will not be able to threat the complainants and witnesses.

“PCOCA will also help in instilling fear of the law among the gangsters,” DGP said. Earlier, reviewing the special naka across Satluj bridge at Rahon, he expressed satisfaction. He also suggested to make it compulsory for each station house officer (SHO) to work here for a minimum two months.

Inspectors Ashwani Kumar, Malkiat Singh,Yogesh Kumar and SI Bhupinder Singh were honoured by the DGP Arora. During his visit to Phagwara, he also interacted with senior superintendent of police (SSP) of Jalandhar and Kapurthala besides other senior officers. He reviewed the security arrangements and also examined working of the CCTV cameras in Phagwara.
