Nagpur: In a significant move to curb flourishing criminal activities, a Criminal Intelligence Unit (CIU) is being formed in every police station. The ambitious initiative of Commissioner of Police Dr Bhushan Kumar Upadhyay aims to keep an eye on criminals in more effective manner.
The CIU comprises eight police personnel including two Police Sub-Inspectors who will be working in two shifts. They will monitor criminals and gather information.

Based on this information, the DB teams will act further to check them effectively.
