Delhi Police to take measures to beef up security in capitalJanuary 16th, 2009 - 10:13 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) The Delhi Police will employ a three-pronged strategy of tenant and servant verification and identifying senior citizens from next month in order to make the capital more secure, a top police officer said Friday. Delhi Police Commissioner Y.S. Dadwal said that from Feb 1, the police will be conducting a survey to identify servants, tenants and senior citizens in the capital.
“Last year we visited around 900,000 houses and only 37 percent people came forward for servant verification. We earnestly request people to come forward and help in servant verification.
“We will create data bank of fingerprints of servants,” Dadwal said.
The police commissioner has also said that tenant verification is also being taken “seriously.”
“We are also taking tenant verification seriously to find out how many tenants are living in Delhi… Each and every house of senior citizens in Delhi will be visited by the beat constable,” he added.
The police commissioner also said that the recently launched anti-obscene cell has been a huge success. In the last 20 days, 563 calls had been received.
“Out of them (the calls received), 227 were made to women and were obscene and lewd. All these cases have been settled with the identity of the victim kept secret,” Dadwal said.
