Police Commissioner T. Suneel Kumar said these vehicles have been allotted to 108 law and order police stations, 44 traffic police stations, two women police stations and other divisions of the Bengaluru city police, along with 272 Hoysala vehicles.
Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy said on Wednesday that he will discuss with Home Minister Dr G. Parameshwar about implementing ADGP (recruitment) Raghavendra Auradkar committee report, which recommends 35% pay hike to all the policemen, with effect from New Year.
While speaking in front of Vidhana Soudha after handing over two- wheelers to policemen, Kumaraswamy remarked that police were doing a good job in providing security to people and hence they are being provided this facility to help them reach the crime or accident spot at the earliest.
