YEARS

The senior Indian Police Service (IPS) officer was then asked if “encounters” could be expected. “There is no such thing as an encounter,” he replied, adding that “regular and professional policing” would reduce criminal activities in the Tamil Nadu capital.

Chennai’s new police commissioner A Arun on Monday asserted that he will “bring the miscreants to their knees” as he took over as the city’s new police chief after the departure of Sandeep Rai Rathod, who was transferred earlier in the day in the wake of the brutal murder of a Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader last week. In an interaction soon after taking charge, Arun told reporters, “Criminal elements will be taught the way they understand.”

The senior Indian Police Service (IPS) officer was then asked if ‘encounters’ could be expected. “There is no such thing as an encounter,” he replied, adding that ‘regular and professional policing’ would reduce criminal activities in the Tamil Nadu capital. The new police commissioner also assured that he would take action against ‘corrupt activities’ in the police department. “Maintaining law and order, prevention of crimes and proper investigation of crimes and curbing nuisance are my priorities,” Arun said.

He further assured that he would bring a ‘good name’ to the state government and Chief Minister MK Stalin. Further, while the IPS officer did not speak much on the murder of BSP’s Tamil Nadu unit chief K Armstrong, he cited ‘statistics’ and claimed that there has been a decline in murder cases in Chennai and across the state. When asked if there was prior information about the threat to the slain politician’s life, he said, “We will see what were the lapses and take action accordingly.”
