Pune, July 03: A local court here sentenced an externed criminal to four months imprisonment after the Pune police used their customised tracking app to find that he had violated the conditions of his externment.

    "A history-sheeter, Pandhekar was externed by the Pune police. However, using ExTra app, we found that he had violated the conditions of his externment by entering the Pune police's jurisdiction," the official said.

    An offence was registered against him at Bibvewadi police station on June 30, a chargesheet was filed within two days, Singh said.

    In the last couple of months, the police developed ExTra, which is a customised and modified version of a home quarantine monitoring mechanism, which is used to track externed criminals.

    ExTra is a facial recognition and geographical location-based tracking system operationalised on an experimental basis, it was stated.
