“Today, all SHOs along with E/Os were present at the police stations from 10 am to 2 pm. SDPOs of each sub-division also personally reviewed the process by spending adequate time at each police station of their sub-division,” said the police spokesperson.
On Saturday, a total of 257 complainants visited the police stations to know the present status of their complaints. “During the camp, problems/issues were discussed and instructions/directions regarding these have been issued to concerned police officials/beat staff,” added the spokesperson.
