Catching drug peddlers who target college students and tackling crimes against women are top priority of the Mumbai police.

The two issues came up for discussion at the monthly meeting of Mumbai police commissioner Datta Padsalgikar on Thursday.

The conference was attended by officials from the rank of senior police inspectors to joint commissioners.

The police have also started to plan security measures for the upcoming annual Ganesh festival.

Padsalgikar asked all senior police inspectors to ensure free and fair registration of FIR and speedy detection while dealing with complaints of crimes against women.

The top cop appealed his men to be friendly when people approach them with a complaint and not make them wait unnecessarily.

He also asked his men to increase vigilance around educational institutions like schools and colleges to ensure no drug-related activities occur there.

A senior police officer said, “The commissioner said strict action would be taken in cases where people are found to be ignoring a complaint.”

Police constables who work as foot soldiers on grass root level have been asked to increase sources around schools and colleges.
