No list of cops with criminal background

The Hindu : Today's Paper News : No list of cops with criminal background

 

The State Police Headquarters (PHQ) has not prepared or maintained a list of police officers with a criminal background, according to a reply from the State Public Information Officer to a Right To Information (RTI) plea submitted by S. Sreejith, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Training). Mr. Sreejith had submitted the application in August last, citing media reports that said his name was included in a list of officers with criminal background and sought to know under the RTI Act whether such a list was being maintained by the PHQ. The reply from the State PIO came early last month, stating that there was no such list being prepared or maintained at the PHQ.

 

In another response to his letter, Mr. Sreejith was informed by the Chief Secretary that his name was not included in the list of officers with criminal antecedents but was included only in a list of officers against whom vigilance cases had been registered. The said case was registered against him before the Court of Enquiry Commissioner and Special Judge, Thrissur on the basis of a complaint filed by one Ramesh Nambiar.

      Governor Ram Naik asked the State Government to mull over the pattern adopted by Maharastra Government so that, a State Information Commissioner (SIC) chould be posted in each divisional headquarters.
      An NGO - Jagriti Welfare Society, wrote to the Governor suggesting that that to facilitate the RTI to every citizen, the UP government should follow Maharastra government where one SIC is posted in every divisional headquarter of the state.
      The NGO said that presently 10 posts of SIC and one of Chief SIC was sanctioned in UP and out of this, eight SIC and one Chief SIC were presently posted but they sit in Lucknow.
      The NGO reasoned that since all top officials sit in the state capital so activists and general public seeking RTI replies have to come to Lucknow to pursue appeals against delay with Information Commissioners.
      The NGO said that if like Maharastra, SICs were posted at divisional headquarters, then making appeal under the RTI would become easier and money and time of government officers could also be saved. Under the present set-up, Information Officers of various departments claim Traveli and Dearness Allowance for coming to Lucknow and attend appeals.
      Sources said that Governor Ram Naik after going through the request wrote to the state government to look whether the Maharastra model was feasible in Uttar Pradesh or not.
