Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday said the investigation of offenses against women, children, scheduled tribes and scheduled castes has to be done on a priority basis and in a meticulous manner.
“Successful investigation of crime is one of the most important responsibilities of police. Investigation of crime has to be conducted efficiently and effectively,” said the Chief Minister attending the closing ceremony of the 64th State Police Duty Meet-2016.
He said police has to be impartial, firm and prompt in handling crime and criminals.
“My Government has initiated various steps to ensure enhanced security of women against crime. We have also put in place mechanisms for close monitoring of offences against women,” said the Chief Minister.
Informing that Anti-Human Trafficking Units have been opened in all the districts of the state, he said the state police launched various campaigns to trace and rehabilitate missing children within and outside the state.
“Modernisation of police force is a priority of my Government. State Police has made progress in improving its capabilities to investigate cyber crime. The “Compendium of Cyber Crime” released today shall surely meet the needs of investigators at the Police Station level,” said Patnaik.
He urged all officials of Crime Branch and the state police to dedicate themselves in ensuring scientific and impartial investigation so that the victims get justice and criminals are adequately punished.
