Jamshedpur, June 15: With an aim to ensure prompt disposal of court cases, East Singhbhum district police on Wednesday launched an online system that will ensure online disposal of warrants and summons.
It has been designed like a virtual gateway between the court and police to send and receive warrants and summonses and ease their tracking.
Principal district judge Bibhuti Bhushan Mangal Murti launched the system at the SP office block in presence of deputy commissioner Dr. Amitabh Kaushal, AAP Anoop T Mathew and other police officers.
Murti lauded the initiative and said that it will lead to speedy disposal of work. ��We hope that the new system will certainly help cops and court together perform better results,� he noted.
SSP Anoop T Mathew said that it is an ambitious project and they are looking forward to make it success. “Delay in delivering summonses and warrants hinder the disposal of cases. But, once it goes online, it will serve litigants on time,� he noted.
According to the new system, the court, which issues warrants and summonses, will prepare a PDF file and mail it to the SP’s office, which then will mail it to the police station concerned.
After this, the thana team will, in the case of a warrant, trace the accused, or when it comes to a summons meant for a litigant or witness in a case, deliver it in person to the address.
SSP Mathew further added that the reference number of each file can be tracked virtually. A separate cell has been set up and software developed for the online system.
Prior to this warrants and summonses were manually brought by a special task force (STF) from the court to the prosecution cell at the SP’s office.
From the prosecution cell, warrants are sent to various police stations for compliance. Summonses are sent to litigants through police stations concerned.
For making the system run properly, the district police authority will give training to some selected cops who are cyber-savvy. One cop said, “We have been asked to monitor the system from the police station itself and passing the received complaint to the officer-in-charge concerned.�
Recently the police department also launched online FIR system.
One can log on the website “jofs.jharkhand.gov.in” mentioning the police station’s name, and the complaint will be immediately registered.
The system of lodging police complaint online has been made available in Kadma, Sonari and Potka�police stations in the East Singhbhum district.
