Haryana’s DGP KP Singh Justifies His Controversial Comment

Haryana DGP K P Singh has kicked up a controversy with his remarks that common people coming across any miscreant trying to outrage the modesty of a woman or indulging in acts of arson or murder have the right to “take his life”. Singh, who was recently made DGP after his predecessor Yashpal Singhal was removed in the wake of severe flak faced by the state police over handling of the Jat stir, said citizens are not aware that they can take action when they come across violations of law. “Common citizens are not aware that this is not just the right which the law gives to policemen only. If the common man is a witness to someone insulting a woman or indulging in acts of arson by burning someone’s property or trying to kill a person then the law gives the right to the common man that he can take the life of the person indulging in such acts,” DGP Singh said. The DGP expressed these views while taking part in a convention about the role of police in Panchayati Raj in Haryana’s Jind yesterday, where BJP MLA Prem Lata Singh who is wife of Union Minister Birender Singh, was among those present.
