Pointing out recent incidents involving security personnel in crimes, Aulakh ordered detailed manpower audit of the force by end of the month. Also, he instructed that the lists of deployment of force should be signed by the district police chiefs and commandants of battalions.
Two gunmen of a senior Punjab police officer were involved in looting a Mumbai-based diamond merchant of diamonds and jewellery worth nearly Rs.40 million near Ludhiana this month.
