In the wake of the Bengaluru violence, Hyderabad Commissioner of Police (CP) Anjani Kumar alerted officers, and the City Police’s social media unit to monitor and update senior officers on any derogatory posts.
Kumar held a video conference with all senior police officers following the violence in Bengaluru.
In case of any exigency, the response time should be less than 10 minutes to reach the spot, he said, adding that all senior officers should arrive at the spot and utilize all available resources to keep the situation under control and peaceful.
Anjani Kumar said all SHOs and additional inspectors should be presented around the clock in the police station with the Divisional ACP and to remain in the Zone throughout the night. We have zero tolerances for communal situations. There will be no jurisdiction in any police station during a crisis. All nearby officers, Blue Colt teams and patrol cars should reach the spot as early as possible, he said.
Meanwhile, Hyderabad Police Commissioner VC Sajjanar warned people against posting inappropriate and inflammatory content on social media.
