The Supreme Court of India has expressed concern over the nexus between the police and governments in power, describing it as a disturbing trend.
The Daily Vendor Newspaper reports that the country’s highest court while looking into the matter said the nexus between police officers and the ruling party is disturbing. And when governments change, action is taken against police officers.
The observations made by the Supreme Court should be looked into not only by the Chhattisgarh government, but also by other state governments, because the arbitrary use of police is not a state-specific problem only.
Almost all the state governments introduce this arbitrariness from time to time. This time, an attempt was made by the Chhattisgarh Police to arrest the suspended IPS officer GP Singh on charges of sedition.
Against this attempt GP Singh went to the Supreme Court, the 1994 batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Gurjinder Pal Singh requested the court to quash the FIR against him on charges of corruption and conspiracy by the Chhattisgarh government.
The Supreme Court has made a strong remark while hearing the petition of suspended Additional Director General of Police of Chhattisgarh Gurjinder Pal Singh.
