early times report
Jammu, Nov 19: Is it policing or hooliganism being "exhibited" by some young police officers, here on the old city roads?
Fully dressed in Khaakhi , four young police officers including three Probationer Sub Inspectors (PSIs) and one Sub Inspector deputed under the jurisdiction of City North police were ferrying in a private open Jeep like college students. Whosoever saw them ferrying in a speedy jeep in the old city area were taken aback as if they were really police officers or some actors who had come to shoot some shots of police officers.
According to eyewitnesses, "four police officers with smart Rayban goggles were even violating the traffic lights as they were ferrying without seeing the traffic signals. Besides, they moved from Parade Ground area towards Kachhi Chawni area via Government College for Women, which otherwise, traffic police have kept as one side entry and that to from Kachhi Chawni towards Parade Ground."
"All of four sub inspectors in a Green colour open Jeep with alloy fitted wheels and other accessories were looking more like hooligans than cops as the way they were looking at every passerby. They were looking more like villains of Punjabi movies as their body language was looking like that", quipped a vendor in Parade Ground.
"If they want to travel in open Jeeps than must have taken leave from their duties should have at least changed their uniforms as the job given to them is very responsible. They should realize that once they wear uniform, they are being noticed by everyone," said a city resident.
All attempts to contact Superintendent of Police (SP), City North, S S Johar for comment proved futile.
