Bhagalpur, April 8: Giving a morale boost to cops, director-general of police (DGP) Abhayanand today said the state force was capable enough to face any challenge, including the Maoist menace.
In the town to conduct meetings with senior policemen from Bhagalpur and Munger, he said the withdrawal of the CRPF from “troubled areas” in the state would not have any effect on the law and order situation. He said the police were competent enough to counter the rebels.
He said special battalions were being raised to counter Maoists. “Personnel appointed in the Bihar police recently are highly skilled to counter rebels. We are spotting such cops across the state and including them in the special battalion,” said the DGP.
On non-banking organisations flourishing in districts without licence from the departments concerned, he said all economic offences were under the lens of the police.
After the DGP came out of the meeting with senior cops of Bhagalpur and Munger, the family members of a 16-year-old abducted girl gave anti-police slogans because of the failure of cops to trace her.
