To fix accountability of all inspector-rank officers in the Crime Branch, Delhi Police Commissioner Alok Kumar Verma has directed them to submit a monthly performance report along with details of cases solved. According to sources, the report will determine their standing in the unit.
Sources said a few months after taking charge, Verma held a meeting with all officials of the Crime Branch, including special commissioners of police and inspector-rank officers.
A senior officer who attended the meeting said, “The ‘average’ performance of this unit made the police chief call the meeting. He gave a speech and said their performance was not up to the mark.”

“Verma clearly stated that they will be a part of the Crime Branch only if they perform well and solve more cases each month,” said the officer.

Following the meeting, Joint Commissioner of Police (crime) Ravindra Singh Yadav asked the inspectors to submit a performance report for the year.
Incidentally, weeks after both meetings, some of the inspectors were transferred from the Crime Branch to other units and some have been appointed Station House Officers (SHO).
“Even an ACP-rank officer, who recently joined the branch, was transferred,” said an officer.
