On the fifth day of the ongoing police week, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath addressing Indian Police Service (IPS) said human rights were for the common man, not for criminals and terrorists.
The CM said several organisations and people criticized the state police and the government for human rights violation, but the police work was appreciated in other states as well as countries like Nepal, Myanmar, Singapore and Mauritius. He said people appreciated policing in the state despite reading negative articles and criticism about human rights violation.
Due to fear of the law, nearly 12,000 criminals got their bail cancelled. “They will have to face the heat if they get involved in crime or anti-national activities,” said yogi.
