The Panchkula Police have restarted the house-to-house searches in the district to get details of tenants and domestic servants. The drive has come up despite orders issued earlier by police that the those who don’t report the names of domestic servants and tenants could be booked and arrested.

The drive started from Wednesday involving women police personnel from RAF for Sector 15 in Panchkula and covers 50-60 house each day.

Police said during the drive no punitive action will be taken against those who fail to give details but they will try to convince them instead. Commissioner Panchkula-Ambala range,Rajbir Deswal,said that the searches were restarted in view of the public demand that the police should gather details of the domestic servants and tenants to avoid incidents of crime. He,however,said that drive has nothing to do with the executive order that was issued by police earlier. Deswal said that the drive will continue for over 1 month and they are expecting to cover all areas.

Police said they are contemplating fixing notices in housing societies. In Sector 20,notices will be fixed at some 100 housing societies. Police said that these notices could be also be communicated to the other sectors by involving concerned resident welfare associations and concerned corporators.
