51st DGPs/IGPs Conference begins in Hyderabad

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today inaugurated the 51st post-Independence DGPs/IGPs Conference-2016 at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy.
On the occasion, Mr Rajnath Singh gave away the Indian Police Medals for meritorious service to officers of Intelligence Bureau and Ministry of Home Affairs.
The three-day conference will deliberate on various security-related issues confronting the nation and come out with ways and means to tackle them.
Addressing the conference, the Home Minister commended the efforts of the Police Forces of the States, UTs and Centre for all round improvement in the internal security situation in the country, be it insurgency in the North-East, Naxal activities, or the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, where attempts to incite secession and law and order problems were made from the neighbourhood.
He acknowledged the relentless efforts of police forces of the States and Centre in handling such disturbances. He also lauded the coordinated efforts of Central and State intelligence for not letting ISIS indoctrinated youth commit any act of terror in the country.
Mr. Rajnath Singh held that that the recent demonetisation move of the Government would impair the finances of anti-national elements and groups. He emphasised on the need of exchange of information relating to best practices among Police personnel belonging to all States and Central agencies.
Contribution of experts of various security domains, such as Investigation, Forensic Science and Prosecution, need to be appropriately recognised, he added.
Earlier, on arrival at the Academy, the Home Minister paid floral tribute to the Iron Man of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and homage to the martyrs of the Indian Police Service, at the Martyr’s Memorial, by laying a wreath.
Ministers of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju and Hansraj Gangaram Ahir, Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi, Director (NPA) Aruna M Bahuguna, Heads of CAPFs and senior officers from security and intelligence agencies are attending the conference.
