Human rights of security forces far more important than that of terrorists: Dr Jitendra Singh, MoS, PMO

Aug 23, 2019

NEW DELHI, 23 August 2019: Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office Dr Jitendra Singh today said that in case of doubt the benefit should go in favour of the security personnel as their human rights are more important than that of terrorists.

 

Speaking at 'FICCI Smart Policing Awards 2019' on the second day of 'Homeland Security 2019' conference, organised by FICCI and Vivekananda International Foundation, Dr Singh said that the nation is eternally indebted to its security forces.

 

"The human right of a security person is much more paramount compared to that of a criminal or a miscreant or a terrorist," Dr Singh said.

 

"A nation which does not have the conscious to respect the sacrifices of its security persons is doomed to meet its imminent end by getting consumed by the same forces which it tends to appease," he said after distributing awards to the police.

 

Dr Singh further said that the nation and the society as a whole are gradually getting conditioned to look at things in the eye instead of getting confused by duplicities. The Modi government is committed to stand by the security forces and make policing more effective whether it be for laws relating to women or drug trafficking.

 

Mr GK Pillai, Advisor, FICCI Committee on Homeland Security and former Union Home Secretary said that there is a relative breakdown of the criminal justice system and cases take far too long both in investigation as well as in the courts.

 

"Two initiatives that need much more focus are upgrading the training quality of the state police forces as technology and crime situation are rapidly changing, and improving the basic governance including monitoring of cases right from the time FIR is registered to the time it is taken to the court to get a conviction," he said.

 

Mr Rahul Chaudhry, Chair, FICCI Committee on Homeland Security said that the fourth edition of the FICCI Smart Policing Awards was being held along with events on cyber security and technologies in homeland security.

 

Ms Harjinder Kaur Talwar, President, FICCI FLO said that the citizens too have an equal role to play and there has to be a collaborative effort for smart policing.

 

The Union Minister gave away a total of 35 awards to various units of police forces of different states under categories such as anti-insurgency, child safety, community policing, cyber crime management, emergency response and human trafficking.

 

While the 'Special Jury - Smart Innovative Policing Award' was won by Maharashtra State Police, individual award 'Special Jury Smart Police Officer Award' was bagged by Ms Swapna Gore, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Pune.

 

FICCI compendium of Best Practices in SMART Policing 2019 from across all states was released at the event which will be an inspiration for other police forces.
