Aiming to ensure free and fair assembly election in Chhattisgarh, Durg Range Inspector General of Police (IG) GP Singh on Wednesday gave specific directives to Kabirdham police to check possibility of illegal liquor transportation and other sedative stuffs in the district from bordering Madhya Pradesh. While chairing the meeting in Kabirdham, IG Singh has discussed wide-range of issues with officials and gave necessary directives for maintaining law and order as well as enhancing their visibility. The IG has chaired separate meeting of officials engaged in anti-naxal operation.

“Kabirdham district borders with Madhya Pradesh and possibilities of illegal liquor transportation during coming elections here are high. To prevent the nefarious activity, close vigil in bordering area is requisite and barricading of identified locations is necessary,” said the IG.

To prevent any untoward, the IG has directed officials to launch a special checking drive at hotels, lodges, bus stand and other places so that miscreants could be rounded-up and necessary action against them be taken. Interacting with officials, IG Singh has directed police team to enhance number of night patrolling points and also suggested them to maintain record (mobile number, name and address) of people they meet during patrolling so that the exercise may turn more effective. The IG has also directed Kabirdham Superintendent of Police (SP) Dr Lal Umed Singh to carryout review all polling centers and chalked out foolproof plan for safety of booths, movement of security personnel as well as logistic support and other arrangements.

Meanwhile, IG Singh has praised the district police over its successful raid against gambling and directed to continue such crackdown on gamblers. The IG also gave specific instructions pertaining to compliance of traffic rules and action being carried out under Motor Vehicle Act.
