POLICE WATCH INDIA (Regd. NGO).
It is a well known fact that the Present Breed of Informers being Relied upon by the POLICE & INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES IN INDIA are, with a miniscule exception, guilty of various category of Crimes ranging from Petty Crimes to Heinous Ones.
If Today Free, Frank and Honest Dossiers of the Informers presently being relied upon by the Police/Intelligence Agencies are prepared, anybody can prove the authenticity of what has been stated in Para 1 above without even batting an eyelid.
Majority of these so-called Informers are from Socially and Economically Weaker Sections of the Society. Almost all of the so-called Informers become Informers for a Variety of Selfish Reasons like, the Police turning a blind eye to their illegal activities such as extortion (both for themselves and the errant & corrupt police personnel), bossing/lording around in their locality, collecting Haftas and/or Dailies from Pavement Squatters, Encroachers etc. on behalf of the Errant & Corrupt Police Personnel.
Hawkers/Rehriwallahs also become so-called Informers for getting the patronage of the Police Personnel to Peddle their Wares at a place of their choice and or increase the size of their phatta/rehri etc. which may have been permitted by some Court of Law (of course for a price).
MANY PROPERTY DEALERS-CUM-BUILDERS ALSO BECOME SO-CALLED INFORMERS/CIVIL WARDENS AS IT BECOMES EASIER FOR HIM TO PURSUE THEIR ILLEGAL ACTIVITY OF UNAUTHORIZED CONSTRUCTION.
There is a Civil Warden of Delhi Police who has become a Billionaire after he become a Civil Warden (a pauper before that) and even today he is the biggest black marketer of Rationed Kerosene Oil. So on and so forth.
Not only this, almost all of the so-called Informers indulge in Double Cross as only money matters.
The Travesty unfortunately is that the Errant & Corrupt Police Personnel also Act as Informers of the So-Called Informers, of course for ill-gotten pecuniary benefits.
IT IS HIGH TIME THAT INDIAN POLICE AND INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES SHOULD REALISE IN PRACTICE) THAT POLICING AND INTELLIGENCE NEEDS TO BE REALLY MODERNISED AS WELL AS REGULARLY UPDATED, AT LEAST ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE LAW BREAKERS, KEEPING IN MIND THE HARD CORE REALITY THAT CRIME AND CRIMINALS OF ALL HUE AND NATURE HAVE/ARE BECOMING HI-TECH. THOSE WHO IGNORE THIS REALITY EVENTUALLY WILL ALSO SUFFER AND PAY THE PRICE. APART FROM TRAINING THERE ARE MANY X, Y, & Z FACTORS WHICH MAKE A INTELLIGENCE NETWORK RELIABLE. (Realising just in Theory, Discussing in Meetings, Making Speeches etc. are of No Consequence whatsoever as it is ultimately the outcome in practice that really matters).
