Jaipur, Mar 24 (UNI) The ongoing community policing initiatives by Jhalawar district police yielded good results with around 90 wanted criminals of nomadic Kanjar community giving up their fugitive life and surrendering before the police with a resolve to join the mainstream.
These hardcore criminals, wanted in by the police in about 125 cases, today surrendered in Jhalra Patan town before Inspector General of Police(Kota Zone) Utkal Ranjan Sahoo and Jhalawar Superintendent of Police Rakesh Saxena.
These criminals, living in Kanjar habitations around Jhalra Patan town, were absconding for long. The surrender was achieved through a programme under taken by the police to wean away these professional criminals from crime.
The programme was the part of the Rajasthan Police's ongoing community policing initiatives through local Community Liaison Groups (CLGs) -- a representative body of local citizens formed by the police).
The CLG coordinated community policing initiatives had yielded good results earlier at several other places including Bhilwara, Kota and Baran districts, in the state.
