Top cop calls for improved security in Valley

Kathmandu, April 27

Inspector General of Police Prakash Aryal has directed the Metropolitan Police Office not to leave any stone unturned to maintain law and order and prevent crimes in Kathmandu Valley.

Addressing senior police officers under the MPO yesterday, the top cop reminded that the metro cops reflected the performance of the entire police organisation and hence they needed to set an example of good conduct and discipline.

“I strongly direct the MPO and all units under its responsibility area to mobilise police in a planned way to strengthen overall security of the Valley. It is high time to neutralise all the elements trying to destablise the country, fully rein in hooligans and make special arrangements for surveillance of main entry points to the Valley,” he told senior cops.

On the forthcoming local level polls, IGP Aryal said it was the duty and responsibility of Nepal Police to make sure that people exercise voting rights in a free and fearless environment.

“Therefore, I would like to urge you all to work with high morale to make the polls a success,” he said.

In response, Acting Police Commissioner DIG Bam Bahadur Bhandari said the MPO would abide by the directives of IGP Aryal to maintain law and order in the Valley.
