With the help of 'Eklavya-V', a software slated to be brought into operation from February 5, the Ahmedabad police will be able to easily get all the information about the vehicles seized by them.
Using this software, police will be able to send messages about such vehicles to the Crime Branch, which will subsequently SMS the details to the concerned policeman.
"If a policeman detains a vehicle and he wants details about it, he can message the vehicle registration number to the Crime Branch, which will SMS him details about the owner of the vehicle, its engine number; whether it belongs to the person who is driving it or is it a stolen one, within a few seconds," Crime Branch Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Himanshu Shukla said.
"The cell number of the policeman who has detained a certain vehicle and the cell number to which he SMSes the registration number of a particular vehicle will be grouped and he can initiate action against the person on the spot itself," he said.
"The cell numbers of all police personnel will be entered in one group so that they can avail the services easily," he said, adding the software had become mandatory following spurt in crime using stolen vehicles and fake vehicle registration numbers.
"Eklavya-V will become operational from February 5," the officer said, adding that they were confident about its operational success.
Earlier, the Crime Branch had introduced Programme for Identification and Arrest of Criminals (PINAC) to assist city police in identifying and arresting criminals by creating their database.
Both the softwares are the brainchild of Dilip Singh Thakor, a police constable with the Crime Branch.
