Bande Bann Jao : Captain warns Gangsters

By 4th July 2017 0 Comments


Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday announced a significant increase in revenues in the first three months of this fiscal over the previous year, even as he warned the criminal gangs still active in the state to either surrender or face exemplary action.
In his first major interaction with the media since taking over the state’s reins, the Chief Minister said he had given a free hand to the police to deal with criminal gangs, and his government was also working on a fool-proof PCCOCA law that would be insulated from abuse of any kind.

Reiterating the government’s zero tolerance to drugs, the Chief Minister pointed out that the crackdown by the STF, supported by the police and other state agencies, had led to the registration of 3845 cases under NDPS Act till 13.6.2107, with 4438 people being arrested and more than 58 kgs of heroin recovered, along with other banned substances. The drug traffickers have either left the State or they have become dormant, having lost the patronage of Government enjoyed by them during the previous regime, he added.
