DG Jail Anand Kumar of Uttar Pradesh said that this will also stop the incidents of criminals absconding during the production and intimidation of people during the production by prisoners and committing crimes with their henchmen. Incidents like conspiracy will be stopped.
New Delhi: The Yogi government of the state seems to be making all efforts to rein in the criminals in Uttar Pradesh. The police have to go through all the procedures till the accused is convicted and the guilty is punished. For the arrest of someone, from the warrant to the hearing of his sentence, one has to go to the police court. Police keep criminals in jail and take them from jail to court on the date of trial. But now there can be a ban on going from jail to court. Now the police will be able to present the criminals in the court from the jail itself.
Criminals will be able to appear in court even without going out of jail with new technology
The Yogi government has stepped up efforts to conduct the accused and criminals from production to trial in jail itself. With this, the police will not have to take criminals out of jail for trial and hearing. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said in a high-level meeting that there is a need to construct one additional video conferencing room each in 72 jails and 73 courts of UP to conduct video conferencing of criminals lodged in jail. So they should be built as soon as possible.
In the meeting, CM Yogi said that since the time dangerous criminals lodged in jail are produced in the court, a lot of expenditure is incurred. A lot of police or other security forces are deployed in their security. During the muscle, they also hatch a conspiracy to commit the crime by meeting their henchmen. Due to this, he continues to run his empire even while sitting in jail. But if they are produced through video conference only while in jail, then all this will stop. It will not cost much and criminals will not have to be taken from one place to another.
5G technology will be used for video conferencing
CM Yogi said that to improve the connectivity of video conferencing, 5G technology should be used in jails and courts so that there is no connectivity problem during hearing and trial. For this, a separate budget should be allocated for the video conferencing system, so that the system can be upgraded from time to time.
