Outgoing Delhi Police commissioner B.K. Gupta Saturday said he was "satisfied with his tenure" as police chief and urged Delhiites to have consideration for the police as they work in tiring conditions to keep the city safe.
Speaking at his farewell ceremony here, Gupta said: "I am satisfied with my tenure and have achieved almost all the goals that I had set."
Gupta also said that the denizens of the city should be more considerate towards the police personnel who work in tiring conditions.
Gupta, who retired Saturday after over 37 years of service, had taken over as the capital's police chief after Y.S. Dadwal Nov 10, 2010.
"Standing under the sun at 45 degrees for hours is a tough job... People should respect police," Gupta told reporters here.
The outgoing police chief added that it was due to the hardworking police constabulary that the city had better law and order situation compared to other places.
Neeraj Kumar is the Delhi Police commissioner.
