UP govt to ensure speedy justice for victims of rape, murder, and other cases; launches ‘Operation Conviction’
‘Operation Conviction‘ has been launched by the Uttar Pradesh Police to identify 20 cases each in every district related to rape, murder, dacoity, conversion, and cow slaughter for speedy trial and conviction within 30 days of framing of charges.
A web portal is also being developed for a weekly review of the cases identified under the initiative so that senior police officials at the DGP office in the state capital can also monitor the progress of these cases.
A monitoring cell will also be constituted in the office of every police commissioner or district police chief for monitoring of cases identified. This cell will be headed by a gazetted officer who will ensure speedy trial of cases identified under ‘Operation Conviction’. It will also monitor the daily progress of cases.
Director General of Police (DGP) Vijay Kumar said, “Since 2017, the state government has been cracking down on mafias under its zero-tolerance policy. Continuing with its policy, the government has launched ‘Operation Conviction’ to identify 20 cases in each district.”
Under the initiative, district police chiefs will coordinate with district judges of their respective districts and request daily trials of such cases. These will be in addition to cases registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012.
After the filing of the chargesheet, charges will be framed within three days and trial will be completed in the next 30 days to ensure speedy justice for victims.
Police commissioners or district police chiefs will also coordinate with Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for speedy procurement of lab reports related to the crime.
