Vijayawada, May 10: As we know that, In the wake of Dachepalli Rape incident, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu had held a public awareness rally and addressed a public meeting in Vijayawada.
Naidu also said police should stay a step ahead of the criminals and should effectively use technology.
Naidu said, "Technology is a double-edged sword. It can be used for good or bad. With smartphones, everything is in one's hand. How they will use it, makes them good or bad."
Naidu advised the Collectors and SPs of every district to meet at least once in a week, and review the situation and take preventive measures so that Dachepalli kind of incidents are not repeated.
He concerned that, These kinds of minor rape incidents are committed by people who know the victim relative, friends, neighbors etc. Mainly such incidents are happening due to porn videos only.
"Every district SP should try to release crime bulletin once in a month. Catching the criminal is one thing. Conviction should be fast. Then only criminals will be afraid. And crime rate will come down. We are using CCTVs all over, drones are under use. You have body-worn cameras. Locked House Monitoring System is successful," he said.
"Dachepalli kind of incidents should not repeat. Criminals should be punished immediately. Police should act together with departments like women and child welfare, etc. Collector and SP of every district should meet at least once in a week, and review the situation. They should plan preventive measures," he added.
