State-level conference of judicial officers, collectors, superintendents of police, prosecutors and investigating officers held at the Auditorium of Samvad Bhawan, Naya Raipur

Chhattisgarh Government is endeavouring to make justice affordable for all in the state, said Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh while addressing the inaugural session of a state-level conference of judicial officers, collectors, superintendents of police, prosecutors and investigating officers at the Auditorium of Samvad Bhawan, Naya Raipur on Sunday. The theme of the conference was Enhancing tools and techniques for scientific investigation, effective prosecution and speedy trial, jointly organised by Chhattisgarh government and State Judicial Academy Bilaspur.

The Chief Minister further said that Chhattisgarh would be transformed into an island of peace by completely making it free from crime.
“Being the head of the state, I feel wounded when any crime takes place with anybody and anywhere in the state,” the Chief Minister said.

The state now suffers from crimes like Naxal incidents, theft and human trafficking which, according to the Chief Minister, are happening due to migration of people from other states in search of employment in Chhattisgarh as state had witnessed rapid industrialisation in recent years.
Fear is necessary in the society to get rid of crime, Dr Singh said.

Chairman of Chhattisgarh State Judicial Academy Bilaspur Justice Prashant Mishra emphasised the need for adoption of scientific methods in investigations. The role of investigators, prosecutors and judiciary are important to achieve the goal of effective judicial delivery system, he added.
“No honest person should be punished and guilty persons go unpunished,” said Chhattisgarh Chief Secretary Ajay Singh, in his welcome address.
Director General of Police A N Upadhyay proposed the vote of thanks in the inaugural session.

The next session began with discussions on promoting the usage of new technologies and tools in scientific investigations, effective prosecution and speedy trial.
