“About 90 per cent of the police served for five years in a station have been transferred to some other places during the general transfers after August 8.

The government has sanctioned Rs 7,500 each to rural police stations and Rs 10,000 each to urban stations for investigating dacoity, robbery and other cases. Thus Rs 6 lakh grant has been given to the district, he informed.

“There has been a slight increase in crime in Somwarpet region in the last three months. But the situation is the same in rest of the places. Steps will be taken to control criminal activities in the border areas after conducting a meeting of inter-state police officials after Thula Sankramana,” he said.
