JAMMU — In a significant development, authorities in Jammu took action against police personnel at Janipur Police Station for negligence in record maintenance, PTI reported.

A show-cause notice was issued to the sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) of Bakshi Nagar, an inquiry was ordered against the station house officer (SHO) of Janipur, and a recommendation for the suspension of a head constable was made.

This action followed a surprise visit by Deputy Inspector General (DIG), Jammu-Samba Range, Dr. Sunil Gupta to the station, during which he inspected the record room and ‘malkhana’. It was found that most registers were not being properly maintained.
