Hyderabad: There is no bias in giving permission for political parties to hold protests at Dharna Chowk, city police commissioner Anjani Kumar said here on Wednesday.
Keeping in mind the law and order issues, the city police impose certain curbs on rallies and other events but had allowed protests by all parties at Dharna chowk, he said.
“No lathicharge took place in the city and we have given permissions to all political parties to hold protests. Insensitive areas, we exercised more caution, though,” Anjani Kumar said.
Telangana is where the police forces have plenty of facilities and grant of sufficient funds from the state government. Thousands of CCTVs help the police in detecting cases. The city police would also introduce new technologies in detecting and preventing crime, he said.
Explaining the future plans, the commissioner said the police would file charge-heets in POCSO cases within 60 days, and 90 days in rape cases, to achieve a high conviction rate. The police would also organise a special drive to prevent drug menace in the city.
The police, he said, would allow celebrations of New Year, but the people must take precautionary steps to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Some restrictions were imposed for the safety and security of people. The amusement places that organise New Year celebrations must take precautions while allowing customers.
In narcotic substances cases, Kumar said a total 246 cases were registered by the city police in 2021. “There is no place to cultivate ganja here. It is smuggled from a neighbouring state to another state via Hyderabad city. To prevent this, the city police have intensified a drive,” he said.
