Task-force in every Bihar district to tackle crime

PATNA: Alarmed by the sudden spurt in criminal activities in Bihar, the state police headquarters is setting up a task-force in all the districts
to prevent such incidents.

"We have decided to constitute a special task-force in each district in the wake of the spurt in the incidents of abduction for ransom, bank robbery, cash loot and petty crime", top state officials said.

Fully equipped with modern facilities, the task-force, comprising station house officers (SHO’s) and efficient police officers, would deal with criminal gangs perpetrating abduction, contract killing, bank dacoity and road robbery, they said.

The task-force would work under the purview of superintendent of police of the respective districts.

The deputy inspector general of police has been asked to identify the gangs operating in their respective zones and engage the task-force personnel to attain the desired results, they added.

The security personnel involved in the task-force would also keep watch on the activities of the gang-lords running a crime syndicate from behind the bars, they said.
