In the meeting, the DGP lauded the officials at each level for achieving the pre-set targets and goals that were set for this year (2022) and emphasised: “they need to contribute more by conducting supervisory meetings and by ensuring closer supervision of important cases, especially the cases of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances or Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for better results for the remaining period of the year.”
The DGP further advised the officials to improve the quality of investigation and prosecution to increase convictions.
He also impressed upon officers to identify more investigating officers and train them to deal with the increasing number of cases. He said that investigators have to equip themselves with the best investigation skills and take each and every necessary measure to ensure conviction of UAPA, Narco and other sensitive cases in the courts of law.
DGP Dilbag Singh also directed the officers to augment measures for improving the capability of personnel in dealing with Narco and UAPA cases.
As per an official release from Police media centre, DGP Singh then referred to the directions of Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and flagged that the drug menace has emerged as a big threat as the ill-gotten money from the drug trade is being used for terror activities.
While pushing the officers for pacing up and improving the quality of the NDPS’ investigation for increasing the rate of conviction, DGP Singh also impressed to work on mission mode on the two fronts of NDPS and UAPA.

He directed the officers to dispose of the pending cases on the basis of their sensitivity in the shortest time possible.
Referring to the bovine (cattle) smuggling, here, the DGP said, “it is an organised crime and there is a need to break the nexus further.” He directed officers to put more effort to identify the main culprits behind the nexus and take strenuous action against the ones involved.
