Director general of police OP Singh on Monday advised constables to take lessons from mistakes to avoid repeating them and to remain disciplined.

Singh was speaking at the inaugural session of the 12-day refresher course launched for the Lucknow police constabulary at the Police Lines on Monday.

Rakhi’s appeal for discipline
  • Rakhi Malik, wife of Prashant Chaudhary, who is accused in the murder of Vivek Tewari, has uploaded a video on social media requesting constables to remain disciplined and to not stage protest.
  • To recall, constables all over the state sported black arm bands in support of their colleagues Prashant Chaudhary and Sandeep Kumar Rana, accused in the Vivek Tewari murdercase.
  • When asked about Rakhi’s video, Singh said: “Rakhi has taken a good step. She understands the importance of discipline in the police force. What can be better than this (Rakhi’s appeal).”
  • The DGP also asserted that action had been taken against all those who breached discipline.

The refresher course was held following criticism from all quarters for killing of Apple executive Vivek Tewari by two constables of the Lucknow police on September 29.

To start with, 6,000 constables posted in the state capital will attend the refresher course. They will be imparted behavioural training apart from firearms maintenance and other necessary police related work.
