During his visit to inspect the Sadar Police station here today, Arora said that the "question of revival of militancy does not arise". On the unrest in Punjab in the wake of series of sacrilege incidents, DGP said, "Police is keeping a close watch on the developments."
    
He was asked questions on the apprehensions of revival of militancy "after regrouping of radical Sikh elements". Asked about 'certain foreign powers' allegedly trying to disturb peace in Punjab, Arora said the matter was under investigation and he would not like to comment on it.
    
In reply to another question, Arora said that the Punjab Police was reviewing the system of VVIP duties performed by the policemen. He said the police officials at the lower level are forced to do duties beyond their eight hour shift.
    
The DGP said that the prevailing system was about 30-year-old and it is required to be replaced with the help of modern technology. He said that he has been travelling to police stations around the state to get hold of the problems in functioning of the police force.
