The Gift Of National Service And Humanity

Police Udaipur

Police Udaipur

I hope you all must be knowing Mr. Dinesh M.N., the former Superintendent of Police of Udaipur, who got a frequent media coverage these times due to the infamous Sohrabuddin fake encounter case. The only identification that he holds at the present!

I am neither his acquaintance nor his blood relation, to have any special attachment to that individual; but it’s for those people who, for our safety; sacrifice their family lives, meet with dangers, sometimes even die, and still face criticism and differences; yes its for our Police! Take this one seriously friends, it holds a sense of a great national duty… And I hope if you understand this one well then the job is definitely half done.

If asked about Dinesh M.N., most of you will identify him as one amongst the main accused of the Sohrabbuddin fake encounter case, as in press all these days but to say, I should rather use the words, remember you… his career was an outstanding one cherished with honesty and a great command, he
was an one man army, whose eyes reflected a virtue of truth at the very first glance… Precisely saying, he was the one who changed the whole system and spoilt discipline of the city of lakes in just a couple of years, all single-handedly… His posting in Udaipur initiated two major operations, Operation Romeo and Operation Bluetooth, both of which helped a lot in reducing eve-teasing and porn films circulation.
The officer did not even cared about him before entering the dangerous field to support his force in facing the vicious tribes during the Rishabhdev Temple dispute between the Adivasis and the Jainis, and eventually got his leg broken in the struggle. The list of his works is endless, with two major criminal encounters covered under him. There was a rapid decrease in criminal activities during his tenure… With almost all kinds of typical clashes and cases being resolved in record time…

Being a man of bravery and honesty, he did a lot to improve the image of the police department. Bribery was brought to a fair lesser magnitude; obese officers were listed and made to parade daily in the police ground, one of the wall of which was erected with his selection(exactly similar to the endpoint of the pass-out parade in the Indian Police Academy, Hyderabad ). He held the major hand in the one and a half crore marriage hall project in the city police lines which was the biggest gift our cops could have ever got from any officer of his rank. Adding to all this, he was the source of influx of a great deal of
morals in them, the man to teach them what honesty was! His name was enough to create terror in the hearts of the criminals. There was never a day in his life when he bent in front of any politician… Be straight, think straight, do straight! was his only motto. Being a part of a rough profession; still somehow he kept all his humanitarian qualities alive (which can be better known by talking to his sub-ordinate).

The condition of the city at the time of his transfer was totally changed. People felt safe in their homes now, no thefts, no murders, no burglaries! Udaipur was turned into a city of total peace and crime-less
freedom. In his own honorable words, the tenure in the city was the most memorable of his career.

And the plight… Just three days after his transfer from Udaipur, the honorary officer was arrested for committing the ‘very serious crime’ of killing that great person in his uniform, who was involved in a number of murders (one being on public road during daytime), with an innumerable cases of theft and
humiliations going over him. Even if it was legally unfair, what seems wrong in killing such a vile person!
God bless these human rights!

First we say, the police is corrupt, and when we get honest officers who possess the strength to change the system, this is their consequence!

It’s more than a year now since he is in jail. And if this is the end of officers like Dinesh M.N. then who is going to protect us? Who will think of being honest after joining this already defamed department? Who is going to improve our state? A big question! There are just two ways out, either sit silently like impotents and simply see all what is happening; or stand up and oppose all this, join the forces and show these people that if they will stop one Dinesh M.N., there are ten more to come… It’s time to transform guys, and no one other than us has to do that!!!

God bless this Democracy!

    Hello Mr.Kalpit Rajak,
    with great respect to your feelings,comments on the encounter case and faith in the police department i would like to state that Indian Judicial System has got it’s own importance. We must know the seriousness of the issues how sensitive they are in nature before commenting. It is the democracy that gives you the liberty to express the way you have. so we should value the importance of our Democracy n then state “GOD BLESS THIS DEMOCRACY”. I truly appreciate your attempt of bringing it to the knowledge of a common man about the good work done by the then Superintendent of police. But at the same time i must tell you that you should trust the Judicial system of India. it is your experience that you are sharing publicly n while sharing you must choose the right words. The two top ranking officers from Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) are investigating this case n they are among the best in the the work they do.They very well know the seriousness of this case n this is one great reason why they have been asked to investigate this case n also to make sure that the investigation is crystal clear n no injustice is done to anyone in the case involved. Already much has been written n spoken about this case.So let us not act trigger waves in the minds of friends n public that questions the honesty of Indian judicial system.I trust the Indian judicial system n justice will be done. If the charges framed against an honorable officer like Mr.Dinesh M N are not proved then he is all set to be free n resume the service with due respect. The work done by Mr.Dinesh M N is outstanding for the city of Udaipur but at the same time we must also appreciate the work of human right activists which primarily work for the welfare of a common man without looking into profit or loss. They are the one who raises the voice against any injustice done. It is their effort because of which many cases like exploitation of farmers by rich people, exploitation of children n women( involving sexual n mental exploitation), human trafficking etc. has been brought to the notice of Government of India, asking the Indian government to take necessary actions in these areas.

    You may not be wrong but you are not right either.

    The Superintendent of Police knows his powers n authorities to work under. External sources(of any type) will never be able to stop or influence the police department from doing the right thing.
    The good job done by the police department is always highly appreciated by the public as I n u do.
    So never try to judge the Democracy on the personal basis.
    Trust the Indian judicial system.Truth will be out n the justice will be done to all.

    hi kalpit
    i totally agree with u but always there are two sides to whatever we look at.
    we cannot judge a person on the personal basis. the work done by Mr. Dinesh is very good but we cannot say or comment like this until the verdict is given by the court.

    hey guys
    it’s good to take a stand on what we feel is right.
    To maintain the legitimacy of the encounter case. the government has appointed honest officers to look into the case. KALPIT for your kind information if u are an officer trying to solve the case, by chance the accused or anyone involved in that particular case is a police officer then i don’t think you will wait n ask him to change his uniform before taking him into custody. You will take necessary action. if it is required for u to take him into custody, at any cost, as a dutiful officer you will not look at whether he is in uniform or which rank he belongs to. you will just do what your duty asks you to do. and that is what the officers did at the time of taking him into custody.

    See, everyone is right on their own places…. i don’t mind your all saying these idealistic things.. even i like it, everyone wants the system to be “systematic”. And you better know, it is or not…
    there always are a dozen factors affecting a particular situation… Its your perseverance that you took it said against the judicial system… i had no such intentions.. just a salute to the police services who despite being our savours, sacrificing their familiy time, personal life always face criticism… it was not a matter of any one officer but the police as a whole… and what about the human rights of our martyrs.. everyday we hear 50 soldiers killed, 60 soldiers killed! what is being done there..
    and should i say, just sitting home and typing all this is slightly different than being at the actual situation.. And If you consider me on these statement, then i promise, remember my name, you will find me in the system in a few years…
    and you know, i’ll leave my engg. for this, despite being an international olympiad medalist with two national recognitions and three state level awards!

    well, gone pretty serious… no personal matters frnds….. nice to talk to you all! 🙂 keep up this view… now we can say it was taken seriously… i say again, no oppositions, it was just for the respect of those who really deserve it…
    and the point that our country needs more of IAS n IPS officers than engineers and chartered accountants…

    with my utmost generosity, nice talking to you all..
