Policing in Malegaon

Malegaon has always been wrongly termed as a ``sensitive town'' by the media and intelligence department itself. However, the city which has a population of more than eight lakh people has just six police stations with a total staff of around 1,500 police personnel. Cases registered with the police stations range from cheating, theft, house breaking to murder. Maximum number of cases are reported under the ``theft'' column of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Malegaon Control room number - (02554) 222003

Police stations in Malegaon:

1) Azad Nagar police station - (02554) 222006

2) Qila police station

3) Aayesha Nagar police station

4) City police station

5) Chhawni police station

The city is supervised by two Assisstant Superintendent of Police (ASP), an additional Superintendent of Police (Addl. SP) and a Superintendent of Police (SP). Currently, Sanjay Mohite, is the SP of Nasik (rural). Malegaon taluka comes under the Nasik (rural) sp'S jurisdiction.

  1. dude nice piece... at least for the people who are great advocates of women police officers' presence in the force!!!...seeing the burgeaoning policing pressure and expanding city limits the office of the concerned Inspector General of Police is mulling to establish two more such policing facilities. The expected move aims to decentralise the burden and streamlie the policing and bring more transparency in the police and public relationship....nice one...
