In his maiden visit to the city after taking over as the DIG Kolhan, Aseem Vikrant Minz asked the police officers to remain vigilant against the Naxal activity besides investigating the pending cases of crimes. He convened a meeting with top cops at SSP's office.
He said the drive against the Naxals will continue and the ultras must give up arms to join the mainstream. DIG reiterated that the police are doing its best and running a campaign to reduce extremists' activity.
He also briefed the superintendents of police about how to maintain lockdown strictly without putting the people in trouble. “I have come up with some important suggestions and asked them to improve on crime. After all we are here to serve the society and it cannot be possible without improving on our part and winning their confidence,” noted Minz.
During the meeting, Minz questioned SSP M Tamil Vanan along with other senior cops, about the increasing menace of sale and consumption of drugs in the Steel City.
Expressing concern over rising incidents of drug menace, Minz said that former DIG Rajiv Ranjan Singh had announced a 20-member special team to combat drug menace in Jamshedpur and Adityapur in the adjoining Seraikela-Kharsawan district. The team will continue to function.
Moreover, the erstwhile Seraikela-Kharsawan SP, Mohammed Arshi during his two-year tenure carried out effective operations against the drug-peddlers who would operate from the Adityapur Muslim Bustee. He did not only arrest several drug-peddlers, but also succeeded in nailing Dolly, the lady kingpin who had been evading arrest for a long time. Following strict action of the police, the drug-peddlers from the Adityapur Muslim Bustee have started selling brown sugar in the steel city's localities like Azadnagar, Mango, and Parsudih. DIG reiterated that the steps are being taken to curb the menace.
The DIG said the East Singhbhum district already has a team of skilled police officers to detect crimes in which the internet or cell-phone is largely used. The matters related to redeployment of police and para-military forces were discussed and necessary decisions were taken but said that the details about the force deployment cannot be shared with the media.
