Uttar Pradesh law and order: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed officials to hold review meetings from district to zonal levels in order to improve the law and order situation in the state, said officials. These meetings will encompass discussions on criminal occurrences as well as pending cases and action should be taken against those who are negligent, CM Yogi said during a law and order review meeting today (October 1).
He emphasized that each incident serves as a lesson, urging field officers to be vigilant in order to prevent the recurrence of such incidents in UP, enabling timely intervention. Directives were also issued to run the Anti-Romeo campaign again in the state to prevent crimes against women.
Simultaneously, CM Yogi also gave instructions to form a cyber crime police station at the district level and a cyber cell at the police station level across the state. Furthermore, Chief Yogi issued instructions to the SSP/SP of each district to conduct a weekly review of every police station, aiming to reduce criminal incidents across Uttar Pradesh, achieve 100 per cent resolution of complaint letters, expedite the processing of charge sheets, and address pending cases. Additionally, he directed the scheduling of fortnightly reviews with ADG IG Range and monthly reviews with DGP ADG Zone.
Emphasizing that every incident serves as a lesson, the Chief Minister directed police officers to learn from the Ambedkar Nagar incident and maintain vigilance to prevent its recurrence. Furthermore, he called for the activation of the Anti-Romeo squad and the initiation of a statewide campaign to crack down on offenders.
CM Yogi Adityanath said that regular meetings of the District Monitoring Committee (comprising DM, SP/SSP, Commissioner, and District Judge) were encouraged to ensure the timely filing of chargesheets. Special attention should be devoted to cases involving POCSO violations and crimes against women, the Chief Minister said. He stressed the importance of taking stringent action in cases related to Love Jihad under the new law.
CM Yogi said that almost all police stations across the state have been equipped with CCTV cameras, directing officers to complete where installation is still underway within a week. Currently, cybercrime police stations have been established at the range level, and the process to establish them at the district level should be started, he added further. Similarly, the operation of cyber cells at the district level should be extended to the police station level, and appropriate training for police personnel should be provided.
Furthermore, he emphasized that even after the operation of the cyber cell at the police station level, the operation of the cyber help desk does not stop. The Chief Minister has called upon officials at various levels, from police stations to SP/SSP/Commissioner to keep a close watch on negative news on social media to maintain peace in the state. With the festive season approaching, there tends to be increased activity by some anti-social elements on social media, the CM said, asking officers to make a list and take action against such individuals.
Furthermore, recognising the favourable investment climate in the state, the Chief Minister stressed the importance of ensuring a hassle-free experience for investors. To achieve this, he proposed deploying ‘Nivesh Mitras’ in every police station to promptly address any concerns or issues raised by investors."The state has immense possibilities for tourism. Therefore, ‘Paryatak Mitra’ police should be deployed at police stations to assist tourists effectively. The problem can be solved only through dialogue and police stations should be encouraged to hold meetings with local village watchmen to discuss and address activities in their respective areas", added CM Yogi.
