File complaints of crimes against women without delay: Mamata Banerjee
Bangla Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has directed all police stations to register complaints of violence against women without delay. She also directed the senior officers to penalise police personnel who refuse to file a complaint in such cases.
The Chief Minister, during a closed-door meeting with senior police officers, advised them to “increase contact with lower-ranked personnel so that information reaches them faster”.
The district police superintendents attended the deliberations via video conference.
The CM has sought heightened vigilance on radical organisations attempting to create disturbances in the state. She has also asked the police officers to intensify efforts to combat fake news and half-truths.
