CM Holds Grueling 9-hour Meeting to Tame Crime in Bihar

Typography

Patna: While on one hand he continues to deny there is a law and order problem in the state, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, on the other hand, has been holding marathon meetings with top cops to come up with a plan to keep the criminals at bay.

After holding similar meeting on two consecutive days last week, the Chief Minister held a nine-hour long meeting with the forty Superintendents of Police (SPs) through video-conferencing to chalk out a solid plan to deal with criminals.

Kumar told the SPs to study crime pattern as documented by the National Crime Bureau in order to get a deeper understanding of the criminal behavior and the action required in dealing with a particular criminal incident. He also asked the police to identify 'crime black spots', or high crime area, in all districts and prepare a database of known criminals and convicts.

Without admitting there was a rise in crime against women in Bihar, the Chief Minister asked the police to give special attention to cases of domestic violence and rape and increase the rate of conviction in such cases.

Interestingly, Kumar has maintained an eerie silence on the recent rape of a 15-year old girl allegedly by the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) legislator from his home district of Nalanda Raj Ballabh Yadav who remains in hiding despite an arrest warrant against him.
