New UT Home Secretary Nitin Kumar Yadav joined the UT Administration today. He said his focus would be on improving law and order in the city with stress on investigation skills and strengthening the Law Department.

Yadav said the Law Department would be strengthened by removing shortcomings so that cases could be defended well in court. “If we do not have the required number of legal officers, the quality of the prosecution will be affected,” he said, adding that similarly, training workshops would be organised for police officials tasked with investigation to enhance their skills.

Yadav said he had directed the head of the Law Department to devise a mechanism so that all cases could be monitored and if there was any problem from the investigation or the prosecution side, it could be resolved accordingly.

“We have to focus on improving the quality of work so that we are able to defend our cases and timely file chargesheets or challans in court,” he said.

On traffic issues in the city, he said these would be resolved with the involvement of the police and the Transport Department.

Yadav, a 2000-batch IAS officer of the Haryana cadre, replaced Arun Kumar Gupta, who was relieved on August 31 after completion of his inter-cadre deputation.
