Nagpur: In one more step towards netting the criminals wanted in serious crimes, Crime Branch sleuths and owners/managers of hotels/lodges have created WhatsApp group in order to keep themselves connected and track down the criminals.
The necessity to create WhatsApp group was felt as it was noticed that many of the criminals, after committing grave crimes, took refuge in various hotels/lodges to dodge their arrest. However, cops succeeded in arresting the hiding criminals only after tip-off from informants and not from owner/managers of the hotels/lodges. But now, after creation of WhatsApp group of Crime Branch sleuths and owners/managers of hotels/lodges, information regarding hiding criminals would be shared accurately and speedily as well.
The WhatsApp group will facilitate exchange of vital information, photos of wanted criminals, sketches of suspects in crimes, and flashing of messages regarding preventives measures on regular basis. Now, through this WhatsApp group, information regarding wanted or suspected offenders hiding in any of the hotels/lodges will be received by cops that will facilitate netting of the criminals speedily.
The said venture is being implemented under the guidance of Acting Additional Police Commissioner (Crime) Ranjankumar Sharma.
