The Dharmaraj Kalokhe case — in which the mill’s special constable was arrested for possessing the mephedrone drug — has forced the Mumbai police to review the duties of the beat marshals working in the unit.

The review, which will be conducted in the next 10 days, was ordered by police commissioner Rakesh Maria, after the police found 12 kilograms of the mephedrone drug from mill’s special constable Kalokhe’s locker in the Marine Drive police station.

Beat marshals and mill’s special constables have the responsibility of gathering intelligence about crimes that are taking place in their jurisdictions.

“As a part of the review, we will look into the activities of these personnel. We will also see how many times their inputs have actually helped curb crimes in the city,” Maria said.

The review will be conducted in all 94 police stations in Mumbai.

The commissioner’s decision came during a meeting on Wednesday that was attended by senior officers.

A review of detection officers and staff will also be conducted, sources said, to check if there have been complaints against them.

They, too, will be replaced if the need arises, sources said.

Officials said the review will be based on the work the policemen have done, and the results they have achieved.

Constables with a negative report will be the first to be replaced.

Generally the beat marshals and the mill’s special constables are not replaced from their duties.

Another officer, who was part of the meeting, said if a specific case is found to be a serious one, the personnel will be transferred out of the police station.
