Madiwala police has not cracked the Jewellery theft case of more than 30 Lakhs reported in FIR 1687/2015 dated 07-09-2015 and Despite Jewellery thefts details and photographs were provided by complainant and police lifted several finger prints from the scene of crime and suspect could have been rounded off by telephone records of suspects and tower location and finger prints lifted by Madiwala police and Dog squad reports and recovery could have been made at the earliest.One should not forget that a thorough investigation is the foundation of an efficient criminal justice system. If this gets weakened, edifice of the criminal justice system becomes weak and thus endangers the public peace and tranquility. The purpose of highlighting all these is not to find fault with the Government, but to bring to its notice that some urgent steps are required to bring more credibility to the police system in the State in general and Bengaluru City, in particular.
