 Cops are wearing dhoti kurtas in Kashi Vishwanath temple- Newstimes News

Varanasi, Mar 27: Police personnel deployed for crowd control in Kashi Vishwanath temple is wearing dhoti kurtas. This move came into effect after the complaints of the worshippers as the presence of police made them uncomfortable.

IG Varanasi Deepak Ratan said, “Usually for law and order duty, police ought to be in uniform. But there are times, like when on VIP security duty, police personnel are asked to wear civilian clothes. There is no bar or rule on when police can sport civilian clothes.”

“Police personnel could be sporting any form of civilian clothing, not necessarily a dhoti kurta, which would be in keeping with the sanctum sanctorum of the temple,” Ratan said.

Cops are also being trained to be behaviourally consonant with the place they are deployed at. Around three or four cops are deployed in the sanctum and they have started wearing the dress from Monday.
