In a rap to the State police, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said on Saturday that the Mirchpur incident should have been handled efficiently.

‘Be more vigilant'

Incidents of caste violence such as those happened in Mirchpur should not be repeated, he said asking the police to be more vigilant and sensitive towards issues concerning weaker sections.

“The Mirchpur incident in Hisar last month should have been handled efficiently,” Mr. Hooda told a meeting of senior officers here. “In case such an incident occurs again, the SP concerned will be held responsible. Dereliction of duty will not be tolerated.”
