TN police’s new initiative: Summons to be sent through SMS

Covai Post Network

Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami recently launched a new facility where the summon details of a case could be sent to the witness through SMS, for them to appear in court.

The Crime and Criminal tracking Networking System (CCTNS) aims at faster completion of trials.

Developed by the State Crime Records Bureau, this is the first initiative in the country where the message would be sent in Tamil to make it more comfortable for the witness.

According to an official press release, the message will have details – name of the police station, name of the court where the witness has to appear, date and time, case details and contact numbers of the police station for any additional details or assistance.

Once the case is reported, all details of witness, including the phone number, will be saved in the CCTNS, the statement added.

CCTNS has been successfully implemented in 1913 FIR registering units in the State.
