Elite Greyhounds now used for sundry jobs
TNN, Feb 18, 2010

HYDERABAD: Trained to conduct vigorous operations against Maoists in jungles, the elite Greyhound force of the AP Police is now being deployed to scare, hound and hunt un-armed agitators, mostly students spearheading the Telangana agitation.

According to highly place sources, director general of police R R Girish Kumar is resorting to the use of Greyhound units to quell agitations across the state and even for bandobast of sports events. “The use of Greyhounds in non-militant and urban-civil situations began in December last year. The DGP is showing little faith in the mob controlling abilities of the City Armed Reserve or APSP or other police wings. At one point of time, more than 20 units of Greyhounds were out in the cities and towns helping the local police,” a senior police official said.

The sources said that IG Greyhounds Anjani Kumar wrote letters to the DGP saying that the use of his units in civil agitations would work against their speciality of fighting armed Maoists in jungles. “Following this, the DGP reluctantly ordered the Greyhounds units back to their original duty. But only for a while. They are back again. They were seen in their intimidating jungle fatigue scaring the Osmania University students in the campus on Sunday night,” the official said. (మరింత…)
