New Delhi: Former IPS officer Kiran Bedi while reacting to the Kanjhawala case where a 20-year-old girl was dragged by a car, called for the earlier police response system through police control room vans.
While speaking with the newswire agency ANI, Kiran Bedi said “I think the response system of the police has collapsed. Because, of the earlier system of the police control room vans, where you had a mobile police force, there were police vans in hundreds, spread all over the city. It was a very well-established system, developed over the years by respective police commissioners. Sometimes, I do not understand when and why the system was dismantled.”
She added that “The police control vans were handed over and given to police, probably to strengthen their resource– vehicular and manpower.”
Kiran Bedi is one of the decorated police officers who have also served as the Joint Commissioner of Police for Delhi.
According to the former IPS officer, this shift in policy led to a slack-up in the response speed of the police.
She said that “So I think it was the consequences of a shift or a change in the policy of the police headquarters, when and why I don’t know. But had there been police control room vans, they would have got the message, the response time would not have been the way it was,” .
She further voiced her opinion on the social collapse in society and added that “The way our youngsters are being groomed, parented and being educated and the way they are taking the law into their hands, getting drunk at night and overspeeding, this is a very serious concern,”.
Earlier, in a gruesome incident, a 20-year-old girl was killed in the early hours of New Year after her scooty was hit by a car and she was reportedly dragged for several kilometres under the vehicle on the city’s roads.
