Every act of police a matter of public curiosity: Patil

Mumbai: Every act of police is a matter of "public curiosity", Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil here today said.

There was a need to have cordial relation between police and public, the minister said after releasing the issue of police department magazine 'Dakshata' in a new format, at the state police headquarters.

The magazine should reach Naxal-affected areas to propagate the government and department's points of view, Patil said. The magazine would help create public awareness in these areas, he said.

The number of economic offences were on the rise, Patil said. There was a need to create awareness about those duping people through dubious finance schemes, he added.
