Delhi: Caught on the back foot for alleged breach of protocol while “raiding” the Kerala House canteen earlier this week, the Delhi Police have issued a one-page circular on the rules to be followed while taking any action against State bhawans.The circular states that police officers should contact the resident commissioners of State bhawans in case the situation requires preventive action. The circular was issued on Wednesday, hours after Hindu Sena chief Vishnu Gupta was arrested for breaching peace and tranquillity of an area, said a senior officer. The circular notes that the police officers who went enquiring for beef at Kerala House “did not establish liaison with the Resident Commissioner or his representative, while securing the place and making enquiries.”Signed by Senior Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Deepak Mishra, the circular notes: “Henceforth, whenever any occasion/ situation arises and preventive or other action is required at any of the State bhawans, efforts should also be made to contact the Resident Commissioner or his representative.”“Where delay can result in any commission of crime or damage to life and property, appropriate legal action should be initiated without any delay. In such situations, assistance of the Resident Commissioner or his representative should be obtained at the first opportunity,” the circular adds.
