KCOCA still toothless law

How do lawkeepers invoke the provisions under the Karnataka Control of Organised Crime Act (KCOCA), 2000, when the government is yet to frame the rules to implement the Act?

This question becomes relevant now, with Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa asking police officers to invoke the KCOCA provisions to curb criminal activities.

The chief minister, while addressing police officers on Saturday, emphasised the need to tackle law breakers, including Naxalites, terrorists and goondas, by taking stringent action against them, including invoking the KCOCA.

After much deliberation, the KCOCA 2000 received the President’s assent in December 2001, and came into effect from January 2002.

However, no case has been booked under the Act so far. This, despite the terror attack at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, in 2005. The Home Department claims that the Act was used against Abdul Karim Telgi, accused in fake stamp paper scam.

However, Telgi’s advocate denies it.

No answers

There are no specific answers from the government as to why the rules have not been framed.

While political parties which ruled the State at different points have given some excuses, law department officials say the political will is lacking. Meanwhile, the police department has suggested a few amendments to the existing law.

Says DG &IGP R Sri Kumar, “Applicability of the KCOCA depends on the circumstances and nature of the crime, and with regard to the law. There are certain stipulations: there should be at least two chargesheets on a person in last decade to book him under the law.”
