The state’s top cop, concerned over the crime going up, said that he would review the topic with the Commissioners concerned in the Twin Cities and take measures to control the unsocial elements with an iron hand. He appeared quite confident and sent signals that he would deliver the results as desired by all concerned.
The police buildings will also be modernized in view of the threat perception from the terrorists on one hand and the Maoists on the other, Mr Dinesh Reddy added.
