GUWAHATI, Dec 10 - Director General of Assam Police Mukesh Sahay today asked the railway policemen to improve their vigil so that wrongdoers, especially human traffickers, do not thrive by using railway as a tool.
Sahay said that it was important for each and every Railway Police personnel to take other stakeholders such as railway ticket examiners, vendors and for that matter, even porters, to improve the intelligence-sharing mechanism.
�From the vendors at the railway station to the porters, we must take each one of them on board in our fight against trafficking and child rights violation. We must take assistance from all to enforce the law on the ground,� the top cop said, while addressing 30 Government Railway Police personnel at a capacity-building programme on child rights by the National Law University (NLU).
The DGP said, �Rails and roads are directly linked to civilisation. But with every good thing, bad elements too creep in and the railway is no exception. We must take proactive steps. Enforcement of child rights should be our priority. Criminals mainly use railway for trafficking of children and we must keep a tab on suspicious movements.�
He also urged the Law University to provide help to the policemen in case they need assistance in dealing with any case related to rights violation.
On the disposal of cases, the DGP said, �Quality and time-bound approach is what we are trying to adopt. However, we cannot compromise quality for time-bound results.�
The programme was also attended by ADGP Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta, Prof Vijender Kumar of NLU and Dr Vijay P Tiwari, head, Centre for Child Rights.
