Haryana to implement special law against heinous crimes: CM



Gurgaon: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday said the Haryana Control of Organised Crime Act (HRCOCA) will be implemented in the state to check heinous and organised crimes.

Addressing the passing out parade of basic course batches 79 and 80 at the Recruitment Training Center (RTC) Bhondsi here, Khattar said separate Haryana Police Rules would soon be enacted, as presently the Haryana Police are functioning as per Punjab Police Rules, 1934.

He also said Yoga would be made a part of police constables’ training for keeping them physical and mentally fit, he said.

The chief minister directed the police to behave in friendly manner with the general public, saying that it would help in making the state free from drug menace and corruption.

He reiterated that women police stations would be opened in all districts of the state by Rakshabandan festival, for which 500 women constables would be recruited. In addition, 5,000 police personnel (male) would also be recruited.

He said to overcome the shortage of research officers, 200 sub-inspectors would also be recruited so that research of crime cases can be expedited.

Stating that police recruitments would be made on the basis on Transparent Recruitment Policy (TRP), Khattar also announced that 3,060 new houses would be constructed for police personnel at a cost of Rs. 550 crore in next three years.
