Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said State Police have presented best example in the country of conducting proper investigation and punishing criminals guilty of heinous crimes against women with death penalty.
While honouring police officials involved in the investigation at the CM House, Chouhan said the investigation of criminals of sensitive category would be made more effective so that such brutal criminals who disgrace humanity do not go scot-free. More facilities will be considered for the police team connected with the investigation. Supreme Court, High Courts and the Prosecution have been urged to start fast track courts for hearing of such cases, he added.
DIGs, Superintendents of Police, Forensic Science Lab officials, police constables and prosecution officers were awarded on the occasion.
The chief minister said the police and prosecution officials have given a message of security in society by ensuring death penalty to rapists who have disgraced humanity and women. Such incidents are very unfortunate and saddening, but when the rapists are awarded stern punishments, it gives a sense of satisfaction also, he said.
He said “criminals should not be spared under any circumstances. Devils do not have any human rights. Earth should be freed of their burden. Death penalty is the only punishment for such criminals.”
Chouhan said those guilty of such heinous crimes were awarded death penalty in record time. “A reformative campaign should be launched for such perverts in society but this is a lengthy process and may not necessarily transform every criminal. It is essential to instil fear of law in such criminals,” he said.
Lauding the police and prosecution officials for their effective efforts and team work Chouhan said getting such criminals punished is a service to the society. Expressing gratitude to the courts that sentenced such criminals to death, Chouhan said the courts have also done an excellent job by meting out prompt justice.
Director General of Police RK Shukla said use of digital technology has expedited the process of investigation and helped factual analysis of crimes. Installation of CCTV cameras in all the districts has helped in controlling criminal activities. As many as 10 thousand CCTV cameras have been installed in sensitive areas in the state. The entire team assisted by the prosecution officers, police officials and the society have facilitated in investigation and punishment to the criminals of such heinous crimes, he added.
Principal Secretary Home Malay Shrivastava, Director Public Prosecution Dr Rajendra Kumar and Additional Director General of Police Anvesh Mangalam and senior police officials were present on the occasion.
