Ahmednagar, 10th April 2010
Mrs. Jyoti, who was recently appointed in Ahmednagar, as a trainee I.P.S officer after completing her training from Police Academy has organized several raids in last 20 days. She has caught a racket producing the illegal liquor of all well-known brands and a factory of making local poisonous liquor costing more than 50 lacs. The factory is just 500 metres away from local Tophkhana police Station and in working since last 5 years in partnership with local corporators and politicians. Mrs. Singh raided several road side dhabas and brothels where the women and girls were used for the flesh trade. According to an appeal of the N.G.O’s and Snehalaya, she has agreed to apply I.T.P.A Act (Immoral Trafficking Prevention Act. 1986) against the brothel and dhaba owners, pimps and traffickers than the sections 111, 117 etc. of the conventional Mumbai police Act. Use of Mumbai Police Act creats the unnecessary harassment in the victim women in prostitution while I.T.P.A attacks on actual criminals of the flesh trade. As the flesh trade is totally criminalized and got the political shelter, Many political leaders and even the agents of these criminal gangs in the police dept. have started creating conspiracies against Mrs. Jyoti Singh. The criminal gangs are also trying for her transfer.
Mrs. Sing was offered a scroll by Mr.Makrnd Kher, well known social worker, convener of Sanskar Barthi. Adv. Shyam Asawa, right hand of Anna Hajare said that Mrs. Sing is following the path of honest Police officers of late Hemant Karkare, Ashok Kamthe, Vishwas Nangare , Arvind Inamder, etc. There is a drought of honesty in the police dept. Hence it is important to support even a small act of honesty.
PEOPLE CAME FORWARD FOR SUPPORT .
Snehalaya appealed the civil society of Ahmednagar to sign a support document supporting Mrs Singh and warning to come on street against the nexus criminals , politicians and some of the corrupt police officers. 10,000 civil society members (including padmabhushan Anna Hajare, Prinicipal Dr. Anil Sahastrabuddhe, Mr.Popat Pawar- Chairman of Ideal village committee of the stated etc) and eminent personalities have signed the support document.
Mrs. Jyoti said that “what she is doing is only a part of her duty. I have joined the police dept. with a sacred motivation. I will continue my task as it is my life mission and service to my own motherland saving the future of our future generation,”. Mrs. Singh further said while replying to her felicitation. She has also added that this appreciation has boosted her morale.
