Before being posted as Cyberabad police commissioner, Sajjanar was IG, Special Intelligence Branch. During his stint there, he was credited with the arrest and surrender of several top Naxalites and encounters with them.
The first encounter dates back to December 12, 2008, when Warangal police shot dead three persons accused of throwing acid on two girls. Nearly seven years later, in 2015, five persons associated with SIMI and other radical organisations were shot dead by Telangana Police after the former allegedly attacked the police escort.
These complaints, called ‘zero FIRs’, can be registered by any police station when a complainant approaches them for a cognizable offence, irrespective of the jurisdiction, and they can immediately inform their counterparts in the appropriate police station while initiating action themselves.
The circular also states that failure to comply with the direction of registration of FIR and a receipt of information about cognizable offence may invite prosecution of the police officer under section 166-A of IPC.
Amid vocal protests by hundreds of people, demanding death penalty for the accused, the police decided to request the jurisdictional magistrate to visit the police station to take up the remand application.
