Bengaluru: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has said that school managements and parents should be equally responsible by implementing safety guidelines issued by the Police department for the safety of children in schools.
Speaking at the property parade organised by the City Police at Kanteerava Indoor Stadium here on Tuesday, that it was not the duty of the police alone to safeguard children.
“With increasing number of sexual assault cases, Bangalore is earning a bad reputation. The perpetrators of such heinous crimes will be not be spared,” he said.
Thousands of people migrate to City in search of livelihood. Some of them end up committing crimes. It was a challenge for police to trace them since they fled to their hometowns after the act, he said.
Witnesses need not fear
Speaking on the occasion, Home Minister K J George said, “Witnesses should testify boldly in the court to help solve crime cases at the earliest. Inspectors should interact with the people who visit the police station to register a complaint.
The police should co-ordinate with citizens to strive for a crime-free society, he added.
A cash prize of Rs 5.40 lakh was presented to all policemen and Central Crime Branch personnel involved in cracking cases and nabbing culprits, on the occasion.
