Chennai cop’s death puts Raj police in a spot

Jaipur: The death of Chennai Police inspector S Periyapandian during a raid in Pali on Wednesday has put Rajasthan police in a tough spot. This is a second such incident in Rajasthan where a police team from a different state acted alone without sharing crucial operational details with their counterparts in local police.
The incident in Pali comes close on the heels of a similar incident in Jalore on September 30, where a team of Andhra Pradesh police had shot down a robber wanted in a robbery case. Here too, the Andhra police did not inform their local counterparts.
The Chennai police team was in Pali on a mission of tracking down a robber -Nathuram Jat. Sources in Rajasthan police informed TOI that Chennai police had met the officials of Pali police on Wednesday evening, hours before they stormed the hideout where Jat was holed up. “The Pali police had advised Chennai cops not to act alone as they were alien to the local language and surroundings. It was mentioned to them in clear terms that any operation without local help may jeopardize their mission,” said an official. Still, hours after the meeting, the Chennai police went on to raid the hideout, a scuffle soon ensued in which Periyapandian was reportedly killed.
The questions are now being raised about what compelled Chennai cops to put themselves in such perilous circumstances. “Going to a different state for raids and arrests are normal procedure. Even we have done in several times. But we do seek some ground support from local police for surveillance and reconnaissance. In this case, Chennai police had none” said the official.
Sources said the Chennai police Chennai police had information they did want to share with the local police. “There is now law stipulating that a state police must procure permission prior to their operation in a different state. However, as a thumb rule we do take the local police into confidence before making any arrest,” said an official of Rajasthan police. Source : timesofindia
