9,437 posts vacant in Police Dept: Minister
As many as 9,437 posts of various categories, including IG, DIG and SP were vacant in the Karantaka Police Department, Home Minister V S Acharya informed the Legislative Council, here today.
Replying to a querry from Congress Member Nazir Ahmed, during Question Hour in the House, the Home Minister informed as many as 9,437 posts including that of IG and DIG and SP's, remained vacant and efforts were being made to fill up the vacancies on priority basis.
Stating that the Home Department had got permission to fill the vacancies and the process had been initiated in this direction, he said the State Government had decided to set up a dedicated and independent intelligence wing to support Anti-terrorist Squad and Coast-Guard to take on Maoist groups in the State.
''Karnataka is the first country to utilise cent per cent grant given by the centre to set up Coastal Security Police stations,'' he said.
Denying that people were facing difficulties in getting registered their complaints at Police Stations, the Home Minister also said efforts were being made to lodge a complaint through E-mails. (Mangalorean/Sanjevani)
