The Bombay High Court expressed displeasure over the police's failure to identify the police personnel from the escort teams in three cases.

The court, on the last hearing, had directed the police to identify the policemen from the photos. However, the bench was today informed that the senior police inspector of Andheri police station was unable to identify the constable in one of the photographs.

"This is too much. We find it difficult to believe that he doesn't recognise the people he works with. You don't recognise your own man?" Justice Bobade said.

As to another case, where the prisoner was being escorted from CST to Churchgate in south Mumbai, public prosecutor Pandurang Pol said the constable in the photograph was not from the Mumbai police.

As to the incident at Nashik, where three college students, arrested for participating in a protest against an SEZ project, were made to write exam papers with ankles fettered to the desk, the prosecutor told the High Court that a probe was underway.

Irked, the bench directed the police to complete the probe at the earliest. The next hearing would be after two weeks.
