“While on the one hand, crime against person and property has reduced, we have acted against organised crime through sustained action against

illicit drug trafficking, liquor smuggling and illegal mining,” said DGP Sanjay Kundu.

Separate registers have been introduced for sexual offenders, missing persons and drug peddlers. The police are eyeing big fish in the drug trade with focus on financial investigation and the seizure of attachment of properties of people involved in the drug trade.

Black spots have been identified and remedial steps have been taken to reduce road accidents, deaths and injuries.

The police have also addressed organised crime, including illegal mining, wildlife crime, liquor smuggling and others.
