Pimpri Chinchwad Police Commissioner Krishna Prakash on Wednesday night disguised himself as a common man and inspected three police stations--Hinjawadi, Wakad, and Pimpri.
Prakash, who reportedly has a good command over the Urdu language, donned a kurta and a skull cap. He also put on a fake beard and a henna-coloured wig to look his part as Jamal Khan Pathan. Assistant Police Commissioner Prerna Katte acted as his wife.
According to a report, Prakash was impressed with the functioning of the Hinjawadi and Wakad police stations. However, the cops at the Pimpri police station were found evading their responsibility.
After his surprise checks, Pimpri Chinchwad Police Commissioner Krishna Prakash said that he will continue the same in the future too.
