Bhubaneswar: Soon after handing over charge to his successor today, outgoing Twin City Police Commissioner Satyajit Mohanty expressed satisfaction that his short and challenging tenure was rewarding.

“Overall I would say my tenure was definitely challenging, short but was very rewarding,” said Mohanty.

Hockey World Cup, General Elections and Cyclone Fani were the three big challenges that were very successfully handled by the Cuttack-Bhubaneswar Urban Police Department, Mohanty elaborated while briefing newsmen after handing over charge to the new Commissioner of Police Sudhansu Sarangi here.

“For this success I would thank my teams and all. It was rewarding and we had earned a lot of praise for that. Moreover, on the crime front criminals involved in all major crimes both in Cuttack and Bhubaneswar have been nabbed,” he added.

The outgoing Police Commissioner also said that during his period the department has been remarkably successful in curbing drug related crimes, which had an overall impact on crime.

“I can claim that I was able to introduce two-three things due to my personal efforts which were people-centric and have given me pleasure. These are like ‘Ama Police Samiti’, ‘Know Your Police’ for school children, apart from ‘Apos Yojana’ for slum children,” Mohanty claimed.

He said there was a need for improving infrastructure and human resources.

“People now want good quality people-centric service for which additional infrastructure and additional human resource is needed. We had also asked for a new UPD in Bhubaneswar. There is need more police stations, more PCR vans and adoption of technology to provide good and improved service,” he elaborated.
