Interview with commissioner of police, Ambala-Panchkula, Rajbir Deswal

Q: Though there have been number of instances where the police have solved crime incidents in few hours but as far as burglaries, snatching, thefts and motor-vehicle thefts the workout rate is quite poor.
CP: The figures can be interpreted in anyway. We have ensured free registration of cases. It has never been the case that a complaint has come and FIR is not registered. The statistics can be misleading. These are not good indicators. We have been dealing with much larger work now. The crime against women has seen much larger success rate. Though there have been failures too but we have been able to instill confidence among the general public regarding speedier working out of cases.

Q: What are the challenges for next year?
CP: The challenge will be plain policing for a nascent commissionerate. We have to meet people’s expectations. The policing will be put in fast gear.

Q: We have just around 500 men for the whole district. Why don’t we increase the force? It has been the same since the formation of the district.
CP: We will not crib about it (low manpower). We will manage with whatever force we have.

Q: Have we benefitted from commissionerate system?
CP: It has helped Panchkula district. White collar crime, frauds, domestic violence, dowry and sexual harassment are indicators of urban life and it is going up. These crime incidents need quick and comprehensive response. The commissionerate system gives added powers to the police which are always helpful.
