Beware! The message is loud and clear that the police have widened their dragnet and not ready to let anyone anymore go scot-free, whatever the magnitude of the offence.

Adilabad: Beware! The message is loud and clear that the police have widened their dragnet and not ready to let anyone anymore go scot-free, whatever the magnitude of the offence. Pretty much on target even on petty issues, the Adilabad district police have come up with e-Petty Case Application that yielded excellent results in Hyderabad, where it was first launched one-and-a-half-year ago.

The e-Petty Case is an app specifically developed for the police for registering trivial cases and to follow them without wasting much of their time. The app is of immense help to the short-staffed police department. Even on the go, the police can book cases on this online platform that runs on tab and android mobile. The e-Petty Case system is of immense help for spotting offences such as public nuisance, noise pollution, liquor consumption in public places, minor fisticuffs, eve-teasing, obstructing the public servant of duty etc.

While booking the case on e-Petty Case platform, the police will enter all the details including the photograph of the trouble monger, thus creating a database of that particular person. If possible, a video clip of the offence will also be uploaded to the database to use it as evidence so that trouble monger gets the conviction. If anyone’s name reflects twice or more times on e-Petty Case app, that person will either be slapped with fine or even sent to prison.

As part of the initiative, the administration gave tabs to all the 22 police stations in the district. In Adilabad district, the malady of matka, gutka, gambling and liquor outlets that will be kept open through midnight is rampant.

This apart, the nuisance and noise pollution created by band parties and DJs is another cause of worry for the denizens. The Superintendent of Police Vishnu S Warrier said: “The names of the miscreants will be reflected in the State database and they can’t get away if they repeat their misdeeds.” The SP himself organised a workshop on Tuesday to impart the knowhow of the app to his staff.
