Police officers are looking for synonyms of Urdu words highlighted by the court.

Laaparwahi, gaflat and tezraftaari are Urdu words which means carelessness, neglect and speeding respectively.

District Curt asked that these words are repeatedly used by Delhi Police personnel while filing chargesheet in cases of Road accidents and it needed to be changed.

However, Court gave some relaxation and stated that, The police can use synonyms for these words.

Delhi Police Officer stated that these words are mentioned in India Penal Code (IPC) and they are using these words because they have been defined in the IPC.

He further added that IPC Section 279 deals with rash driving and its Hindi translation is laaparwahi.

Senior Police Officer also stated that, “We are drafting a reply to the order passed by the judge. The DCP concerned has been instructed to file a suitable reply,”.

According to Advocates, No court can instruct the investigating officer (IO) over the usage of words as these words are mentioned in the IPC book and are easy to understand by public.
