The disadvantage of low-waist pants is that cops would not be able to sit down whenever a situation warrants, says DCP

Flaunting low-waist pants and skin-tight shirts have landed over 400 Punjab Police personnel, including women, in a soup as they were served notices for allegedly violating rules concerning uniform.

Among the erring cops, six are assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs) and the rest constables and head constables, said the Ludhiana DC.(JS Grewal/HT Photo)

“Of 460 personnel we checked, we found that the uniforms of 417 were not as per the rules. Therefore, they have been served notices,” Ludhiana deputy commissioner of police Dhruman H Nimbale said on Tuesday.

“They were wearing low-waist pants, short-sleeve shirts, skin-tight shirts and narrow bottom pants. In some cases, the sleeves were short by two inches and the bottom of the pants was even less than 15 inches as against 18 inches rule,” he said.

“Even women cops were found flouting the norms as they were found wearing tight-fit shirts and low-waist pants,” Nimbale said.

Among the erring cops, six are assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs) and the rest constables and head constables, he said.

The DCP said the “show off” on part of the personnel would not be acceptable as far as the uniform is concerned. “The disadvantage of low-waist pants or a tight-fit dress is that cops would not be able to sit down whenever a situation warrants,” he said.

Nimbale said they (cops) have been asked to get necessary alterations done as per the Punjab Police uniform rules. “If they do not obey rules, departmental action can be taken against them,” he said.

Most of personnel, who were served notices, have been in service since 2010, the DCP said.

While the 417 police personnel had to face the wrath of their seniors, 17 were handed over certificates of appreciation for donning the uniform conforming to rules.
