THANE POLICE’S PROPERTY CELL CLOSED

prop-cel-2Thane Police Commissioner Anil Dere has shut the property cell of the Thane Police. The Property Cell was made functional by former Thane Police Commissioner D Sivanandan with the aim of handing over stolen goods in thefts, robbery and dacoit cases related to property. For former Commissioner of Police D Sivanandan, the main reason for commencing a property cell was to ensure that the goods that the police seized from robbers in property theft, dacoit and robbery cases were handed back to their owners. Till last year, the Thane Police registered Rs. 72 Crore robberies in property cases, of which the property cell seized property worth just Rs. 19 Crore. For the remaining Rs. 53 Crores, the cell’s running around from the related departments to the court has been a complete failure. This was the reason why Thane Police Commissioner Anil Dere decided to completely shut the property cell and shift the 9 officials to other depts. The Thane police’s decision of completely shutting down the property cell than working on the reasons of its failed services has set many tongues wagging within and outside the Thane Police.
