Haryana’s new strategy to control rising crime: Check Your Criminal

Explaining the strategy, Chawla said: "It's part of a three-fold strategy: CYA (criminal your are after), CTBA (criminal to be arrested) and CTP (crime against property). We are recording the details of especially those criminals, who are active in Hisar range in the last five years. There are certain criminals, for whom the members of society are ready to give sureties and assurances; but then there is another large segment, for whom, nobody is ready to bear responsibility. For these criminals, we have started this strategy of calling them to the police stations and recording their details. It shall surely help us in curbing the crime rate."

The initiative comes in the wake of former Director General of Police, Ranjiv Singh Dalal, directing district police chiefs to keep a constant watch on the people with criminal track records, during the last days of his tenure. The officers were even directed to capture details such as a person's mobile phone number, vehicle registration number and personal details of their friends and relatives.
