Greetings from PVCHR.
Please refer to the news in the link and the attached report: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chandigarh/Constable-refuses-to-register-theft-says-he-cant-start-day-on-bad-note/articleshow/9143142.cms
Constable refuses to register theft, says he can't start day on bad note
CHANDIGARH: ''Please come after 2pm. If we entertain a complaint of theft incident in the beginning of day, the whole day would be passed while handling such complaints.''
Amandeep Saini, 27, of Naraingarh was stunned to hear the response of a constable, when the former approached him for lodging a theft complaint of a cellphone at police post PGI on Thursday.
The cellphone belongs to a serving Lt Col R K Saini, who was admitted in Nehru Hospital in PGI since July 3, and was stolen from his bed.
Amandeep, a distant relative of the Army officer, said he went to police post with a written complaint which was turned down by the constable. When he stressed that cellphone was costly and swift action of cops might trace it, constable asked him to come back in afternoon, Amandeep added. The cell phone was stolen between 5am and 5:30am from the bed of patient on Thursday.
Police personnel of police post PGI only swung into action when matter was brought in the notice of post in charge sub-inspector (SI) Iram Rizwi, who pulled up the staff for not accepting the complaint of mobile theft. SI Rizwi said the complaint was genuine and IMEI number of stolen cellphone has been put on surveillance. A daily development report (DDR) of the incident was registered at police station, Sector 11 and a copy of DDR has also been handed over to the complainant, police sources said.
