KADAPA: Kadapa DIG Vinoy Kumar Singh has promised to give cash prizes to complainants who prove that they were meted out injustice by policemen.

However, false complaints would be viewed seriously, he said and warned of stern action against criminal elements who lodge false complaints with a view to harass police officers. "We can't allow terrorists, naxalites, dacoits and factionalists to demoralise good police officers," he asserted. Being duty bound to redress all genuine grievances of people as fast as possible was the Republic Day commitment in Kadapa and Kurnool districts, Mr. Singh said.

"Actionable vision for policing" programme was started to bring police and people together, the DIG said. Vested interests drive a wedge between the police and the people to serve their own interests, he said.

The DIG said anyone in distress could meet him without prior appointment or call on his mobile No. 94406 27214 or his residential phone No. 08518 235777. He called for people's support to help the police serve people in a better manner.
