Bizarre: SHO Rajouri makes DC to wait at Police Station gate for an hour

RAJOURI: In a strange development, Deputy Commissioner (DC) Rajouri, Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) and the assistant commissioner revenue weren’t allowed to enter into the police station in the district even after waiting for more than an hour, officials said on Saturday.

Eye-witnesses said that Deputy Commissioner Rajouri accompanied by Additional Deputy Commissioner and Assistant Commissioner Revenue reached the police station but were not allowed to enter the station even after waiting for more than an hour.

“The Cavalcade of Deputy Commissioner remained stationed outside police station Rajouri for more than an hour for unknown reasons,” the eye witnesses said.

They further said that after almost an hour, Additional SP Rajouri reached on spot and took Deputy Commissioner inside the police station.

Sources said that Station House Officer Rajouri was not present inside the station when DC reached there while as Superintendent of Police was also on leave. At present the Deputy Inspector General of Police is heading the police department in the district, they said. “The trio were told that they should have informed the police prior to their visit to avoid unnecessary discomfort caused to them,” sources said.

Deputy Commissioner, Rajesh K Shavan, when contacted refused to comment stating that “I am on some official work.”
