Warangal: Commissioner of Police (CP) V Ravinder has directed the court constables to ensure increase in conviction rate in both civil and criminal cases to curtail occurrence of crimes.
He addressed a gathering of constables from different police stations attending the court cases under the commissionerate. It was the first-of-its-kinds meeting to be held with the court constables, according to a press release issued here on Friday.
The Commissioner urged the constables to adopt scientific approach in gathering evidences required for proving the accused guilty of the crime in the court of law. A proper plan of action was needed to be implemented to increase the rate of conviction in the pending cases, he said.
From the time of filing the First Information Report (FIR) to the conclusion of a case, the concerned police officials and the constables should take the responsibility of collecting all evidences to prove an accused guilty. Convicting an accused would serve as a deterrent to prevent further criminal acts, he noted.
With regard to non-bailable warrant cases, the officials have to collect the details of pending non-bailable warrants issued against the accused persons before producing them in the court along with all other details.
Last year, 20 per cent of the accused were convicted in different cases and this year efforts should be made to achieve 60 per cent conviction rate, he said. In the coming days, rewards would be given to the police constables who succeeded in convicting the accused in the courts, Ravinder informed.
DCPs, Venkat Reddy and Venkateshwarlu, CCRB ACP Madan Lal, inspectors Kumara Swamy, Jitender, Vijaypal Reddy, Raghavender and others were present.
