Five days after the carjacking incident in Sector 20 market here exposed chinks in the police set up to deal with such cases, Haryana director general of police (DGP) BS Sandhu raised concerns over the rising crime graph in Panchkula and asked the local police officials to crack unsolved cases at the earliest.
In indirect reference for the top brass to be vigilant, Sandhu said if senior officials remain more in field following major incidents, it helps in maintaining pressure on the ground staff and crack cases fast.

DGP Sandhu who chaired a meeting of all the top brass of Panchkula police, including all police station heads, said he has asked the DCP office in Panchkula and other districts too to make the list of all such sensational cases, take special interest in solving them and also send regular status report to head office.
