Procedural delays by service providers are proving to be a block in solving for urgent cases, where loss of time could prove fatal.
Now, the police are facing problems with service providers of different networks, who demur at providing call data on demand, thanks to the fear created by the CBI joint director Laxmi Naryana’s call history linking to a woman journalist that raised a storm.
The CBI official’s call history was allegedly pinched by the Nacharam police inspector Srinivas Rao. Service providers till then had no hesitation helping the police with information but now they demand in writing from the deputy commissioner of police.
This procedural delay is proving a block for urgent sensational cases where loss of time proves fatal.
After the theft of call data of joint director CBI Laxmi Nararayana police top brass conducted a meeting with government decided to give password to superintendent of police in each district and he will be responsible for its safety.
“We don’t have any problem if SP is given password because we don’t do any illegal work,” remarked inspector of police Asif Nagar J Narsaiah.
But, the Task Force police who must sprint to action when cases break are put in a quandary. Restrictions make their works delayed, the Central Zone Task Force inspector Ch Srinivas admitted so much but he said so far the police had not a major problem on this count.
Additional inspector of Musheerabad Mohd Riyazuddin regretted losing good camaraderie with the service providers.
“Earlier we used to get helps from the service providers without much problem but after the case of joint director CBI, it had become difficult. Every misuse restricts work, he observed.
