Preventing communal flare-ups focus of Delhi Police for polls

New Delhi: Increasing visibility, preventing the chances of communal flare-ups and checking candidates from "luring voters" by illegal means will be the focus of Delhi Police for civic elections in the national capital. Special Commissioner (Law and Order) Dependra Pathak said, "Our policing has focussed on the MCD elections for the last six to eight weeks. There is a focus on routine policing, staying alert and gathering local intelligence. We are collating the information and analysing and strategising the area-wise data... "We are also analysing the kind of candidates and demographic composition of the area. For instance, if certain areas have more 'jhuggi jhopri' (slum) clusters, they become more sensitive," he said. Explaining further, he said slum clusters required increased police presence as the voters might be tempted with liquor and there could be chances of miscreants coming from across the border. “If it is a communally sensitive locality, we need to have information from the field on what is brewing in the area. We are also keeping a close watch on gambling and the supply of liquor and drugs," the senior officer said. Senior officers have been asked to stay in office while checking of vehicles has gone up, he said.
