A day after the Supreme Court issued directions to ensure stopping of stubble burning “forthwith”, Punjab DGP Gaurav Yadav on Wednesday asked the police officers to work in tandem with the civil administration to prevent farm fires in the state.
DGP Gaurav Yadav asked all the police commissioners (CPs) and the senior superintendents of police (SSPs) to ensure patrolling by the area station house officers (SHOs) to prevent stubble burning in the state. The DGP also directed the officers to divide their respective districts into sectors and to depute a gazetted officer (GO) as in-charge of the sector to ensure proper monitoring of stubble burning incidents.
According to a press release, Gaurav Yadav ordered all CPs/SSPs to hold daily meetings with district magistrates in this regard. The DGP appointed Special DGP (Law and Order) Arpit Shukla as the police nodal officer to monitor action against stubble burning.
“The police nodal officer shall issue suitable directions, hold meetings, conduct tours and collect and collate relevant information and put up to the DGP Punjab and the chief secretary so that monitoring of the actions being undertaken by the police to ensure compliance of the directions of the Supreme Court is done in an effective manner,” the DGP’s order read.

An official spokesperson of the Punjab Police in the release said that depending on the area and size of the police station, a sufficient number of additional patrolling parties are being activated with immediate effect.
The spokesperson also said the district police has been directed to engage the farmers, citizens and various stakeholders to sensitise them about the ill-effects of stubble burning, which is also a violation of law and action, and action could be initiated against them.
The DGP was holding a state-level law and order review meeting via video conference.
