Law and order will be of utmost importance for Bokaro’s new superintendent of police (SP) Jitendra Singh who took charge on Thursday.
Addressing a news meet, Singh said he would carry on the good work done by his predecessors and leave no stone unturned to curb Naxalites. The new SP also sought public support for all his future endeavours. “I will be available round the clock. But, residents must also co-operate with the police by catering information to officers so that law and order issues can be dealt in a better way,” he added.
Originally from Bihar, Singh however is not new to the district. He has served as the deputy superintendent of police (DSP) of Bokaro for three years from the late 1990s. Singh said his experience would come handy.
He added that his experience as Lohardaga SP would prove useful to handle the rebel problem.
Speaking about economic offences like coal smuggling in Bermo, Singh said his aim would be to expedite arrests of such offenders and thereby curb the menace in the district.
Earlier, former Bokaro SP Kuldip Dwivedi, who has been transferred as commandant of JAP-I in Ranchi, handed over charge to Singh at his office in Sector I around 4pm.
