Police vigilant about naxal activities: IGP

Staff Correspondent

BIJAPUR: Inspector General of Police, Northern Range, Belgaum, T.G. Doreswamy Naik said here on Tuesday that the police is taking steps to ensure that naxals do not become active in the northern range.

Mr. Naik visited the district for the first time after assuming charge a week ago.

Speaking to presspersons after reviewing the law and order situation and the functioning of the police department in the district, he said that the police will keep a strict vigil over the activities of naxalites in the region.

Asked about the reported statement by Bagalkot Deputy Commissioner that naxal activities have been noticed in the district, he said he is yet to come across any such information from department officials.

However, the department is watchful about naxals and their movement in the region, and appropriate steps will be taken as and when an alarming situation arises, he said.

To a query Mr. Naik said he has no evidence to suggest that bar girls from Mumbai who have lost their jobs are migrating to towns in Karnataka.

Stating that the law and order situation is satisfactory in the Northern Range, which comprises Bijapur, Bagalkot, Belgaum, Gadag, Dharwad and Haveri, Mr. Naik said the department officials have been given the authority to take strict action against anti-social elements.

He said that station-level citizens' committees, which are now dormant, will be revived.

Referring to the series of dacoities in some towns along National Highway 13, Superintendent of Police Seemanth Kumar Singh said the modus operandi is similar in most of the cases.

The police have got some vital clues about the gang, and they will arrest the accused soon, he said.
