Madhya Pradesh Human Rights Commission (MPHRC) team visited Police Training Centre at Bhauri. During this visit MPHRC Chairperson Justice Narendra Kumar Jain. MPHRC Secretary Sanjeev Kumar Jha and Additional Director General of Police Sushma Singh were present. During the visit Academy Director Sushobhan Banerjee informed MPHRC panel about services and activities of police training centre and also made the team visits many areas of police training centre which includes Auditorium Hall, Conference Hall. The police training centre is equipped in providing training in cyber crime, forensic sciences, ballistic sciences and others, besides running basic courses.


Police Training Centre should be equipped with classrooms, conference halls and auditorium. Besides, computer labs and imparting training on Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System (CCTNS) and the other lab for other basic computer courses needs to be there so as to facilitate police personnel. Accommodation facility with food and health care facilities are basic which needs to be monitored regularly. For outdoor training, parade ground facility for sports are also add on facilities which a police training centre needs to be equipped with.


But recently during hearing of one of the case it was brought to notice of MPHRC that basic facilities in police training centres are not there because of which the trainees are suffering. Basic first aid treatment and health care facilities should be available within training center so that in case of any emergency it can be used to facilitate the police trainee personnel. Last week MPHRC during the hearing of the case where a trainee constable died while undergoing training at the Police Training Centre, Gwalior, last year had ordered a probe and accordingly sets of recommendations and guidelines for training centre were issued. Besides taking cognizance of the case, MPHRC has also suggested for compensation to the victims family.

Series of recommendations includes facilities including basic health care and other amenities which are required for the trainee.


During the probe conducted earlier it was found that police training centre at Gwalior was not equipped with facilities and the lenient attitude shown by the police training centre administration had led to the death of police constable trainee. Earlier, MPHRC had issued notification and asked for a detailed report which led to the circumstances of the death of police constable trainee at police training centre at Gwalior.
