Having shared a piece of advice with the Nepal Police officials the past week, Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Rabi Lamichhane on Monday summoned a meeting of the Chief District Officers (CDOs) and district-based security agency chiefs.
Representatives from all security agencies under the district security committees from across the country attended the online meeting, according to Home Ministry spokesperson Fanindra Mani Pokharel.
According to him, Home Minister Lamichhane took stock of the situation of security and service delivery and direct chiefs of the district-based agencies and CDOs for further improvements. The minister instructed officials to make sure that people don't suffer from cold wave and harsh weather conditions this winter, he added.
Minister Lamichhane had expressed his commitment to engage in efforts to bring reforms in the home administration and implement the rule of law after assuming his office.
On his instructions, a five-member committee has been formed under DSP Durga Singh to advance the investigation into the murder of Nirmala Pant.
Last week, he also monitored the Department of Passports on-site and issued necessary directives to improve service delivery.
Monday's meeting was focused on taking necessary measures for maintaining law and order, addressing citizens’ complaints and making the home administration's service prompt and effective.
