ANANTAPUR: Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Anantapur Range, B.L. Sujatha Rao and Superintendent of Police M.K. Singh have asked the assistant public prosecutors (APPs) to make efforts to hasten up the judicial process for taking up the trial in cases in which the police investigation is completed.

Speaking at a coordination committee meeting with the APPs in the district here on Saturday, they said the police and legal fraternity should work in tandem for speedy disposal of cases. The DIG and SP enlightened the newly appointed APPs after their training in the A.P. Police Academy on their functioning.

Valuable suggestions

The APPs could even give valuable suggestions to the police even when the cases were under investigation and help speedy filing of charge-sheet, the DIG said. The APPs should also give proper suggestions to witnesses during the trial of cases. The APPs should also aim at doing justice to the victims by ensuring appropriate punishment to the culprits.

Legal advisor to the district police Ravindranath suggested the APPs to prepare the witnesses in way that their deposition would help the victims get justice and punishment to culprits. Senior APP Barkat Ali Khan also participated.

Earlier, the SP visited Prosecution Bhavan on the district courts complex and assured the APPs of providing a computer with modern law summary containing the copies of the High Court and Supreme Court judgments.
