“It must be found out as to who was distributing fake currency and from where it was coming. No police officer can keep fake currency in his or her possession or at a police station without taking any action or registering an FIR. Such fake currency must be deposited with the RBI immediately,” said Vij.
He said many applications were found on which no action had been taken. “These applications should have been processed due to which the station in-charge (SHO), munshi and night munshi were suspended,” he added. Citing that work was not being done in adherence to law at the police station, he said, “I wanted to suspend everyone present in the police station. But I am yet to receive several documents.”
He said the police station had no security guard at the gate. He checked the attendance and registers of cops. Vij said no register was maintained on which the time an employee reaches and leaves the office. The munshi, he said, was not in uniform.
“All these are violations of police manuals. It seems that police officers must be sent to an elementary school to revise know the rules of the police manuals.” Vij also talked to some of the complaints from the police station on phone to enquire about the status of their complaints.
Vij also ordered to register an FIR against a complainant who had alleged that he was kidnapped and almost murdered, but later entered into an agreement. “The complainant was taking undue advantage of the police by leveling such serious allegations. I have told the DCP to book him,” he said. He said the complainant is an employee of a Singapore company.
