AIG pledges law and order

KATHMANDU: Newly appointed AIG Kalyan Prasad Timalsena today expressed his commitment to establishing peace and security and ending impunity in the society.

Addressing a press conference, he said

impunity prevailed both in the society and organisations.

He said he would take action against police personnel who were working against the law.

“We are trying our best to stop chhakajam since it is affecting the public life,” said the AIG, adding that the police were committed to maintaining social security. He

said officials were being rewarded or punished

on the basis of their performance.

The police have started filing the report of drug-related cases at District Administration Offices to control the cases of the release of the accused after the case has been filed. The police have heightened night-time checking and have increased the use of CCTV in the capital.

AIG Timalsena said the Valley was recording an increased number of day-time robbery and theft. Seventy-one of the 85 cases of theft occurred during the day last month. The police also plan to raise public awareness.
