Don't take law into hands: Police to people

Amitabha Maiti 
TT, Jalpaiguri: The district police chief on Tuesday appealed to residents to inform the law enforcers via phone or Whatsapp in case they come across any person whom they suspect to be child-lifters.
SP Amitabha Maiti also said the four women who had been assaulted at Daukimari village in Dhupguri block on Monday were thieves and were involved in a number of cases of stealing saris and other garments from shops.
"We would like to appeal to the residents not to take law into their own hands. In case they find any suspicious person in their locality, they should inform us and refrain from assaulting the person. We want to make it clear that anybody found intercepting and assaulting a person will face strict action from our end," said Maiti.
He also informed that for Monday's incident at Daukimari, the police had identified and filed a case against 25 villagers. Searches are on to nab these people who had assaulted the four women and had even stripped two of them, he said.
In Jalpaiguri, a number of incidents of assault of people, spotted new in localities, have been reported. Police have started awareness campaigns in some of the areas but this is the first time that the district police chief has appealed to people to inform at the control room (03561-230725) or in the Whatapp number (977515001).
"There is information that a section of people are spreading rumours about child lifters in a planned manner. All the police stations have been put on alert and have been asked to probe separately about these people," said Maiti.
Speaking about the four women, Maiti said all of them are residents of New Jalpaiguri area. On Monday, three of them had claimed to be Dhupguri residents which the police have later found to be false.
"They work in gangs and are engage in thefts. They get into shops and steal garments, which they later sell in different locations. On July 22, they had stolen some clothes from a shop in Daukimari, the same place where they had gone on Monday. We are yet to know the purpose of their visit," the SP said.
Pradyut Roy, the shopkeeper from Daukimari, has identified them. There are cases against them in Bhaktinagar police station (under Siliguri Metropolitan Police), said police sources.
On Tuesday, all the four were produced at a local court here on the basis of the complaint filed by the shopkeeper from Daukimari.
Among them, two were sent to police custody for four days while the other two have been sent to judicial custody for 14 days, court sources said.
Even on Tuesday, fresh rumour about child lifters led to tension in Paschim Salbari village, also under Dhupguri block. Sources said three persons, including a woman, came at a relative's place in the village from Assam on a visit. Their presence left locals suspected, who called the police.
Police took away all three of them and also a member of the family where they had come.
"They have been detained. Our officers are verifying their identity and purpose of visit," said an official.
Attacks by mobs were reported from Bengal even after the Supreme Court sought a crackdown on people taking law into their own hands.
