Multiple challenges kept Telangana police on their toes in 2021


From traffic fatalities to cybercrime, this year’s criminal records are littered with various but nagging incidents

Succeeded in suppressing left-wing extremism (LWE), but struggles to strike similarly in other areas of the police. This puts Telangana Police’s performance in perspective this year, which is drawing to a close. By neutralizing six Maoists on Monday in a joint operation with the Chhattisgarh police, they once again proved their superiority in the battle against LWE.

Success is not at the same level when it comes to smuggling, selling and spreading ganja around the state, dance of death on the roads, and ever-increasing cybercrime. Cases of seizures of ganja in huge quantities in different parts of the state are due to the police in Telangana.

The authorities were victorious in liberating the state of “Gudumba”. While the manufacture of illicitly distilled spirits has declined dramatically, the sale and smuggling of ganja has increased rapidly.

The use of contraband and its availability had increased throughout the state. In remote parts of the districts, too, cases of adolescents sniffing ganja are reported in large numbers. Surely not everything that is sold in the state is grown here.

Investigations have indicated that organized gangs are collecting contraband in the interior parts of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. It is said that ganja is grown in deep forest areas and the authorities are unable to enter these places to control them.

Fatal accidents

Another cause for concern is the loss of human life in traffic accidents. During the end-of-year reviews, the heads of police units boast of reducing deaths from road accidents by presenting statistics. The data, however, clearly shows that the so-called reduction is too marginal to celebrate. The fact remains that hundreds of lives are lost every month in road accidents on national and national highways as well as on domestic and internal roads.

Despite their often heckled “friendly police”, a Dalit woman reportedly died after being subjected to third-degree methods during questioning over a theft case in June.

The death in custody of Mariamma at the Addagudur Police Station of the Rachakonda Police Station resulted in the dismissal of three police officers. Questions remain as to the initiation of criminal proceedings against them.

Online fraud

With the increase in internet usage, online crimes naturally increase, and Telangana State is no exception. Yet cases of individuals ending their own lives as a result of “harassment” and “humiliation” by online loan application companies have emerged as a new challenge for law enforcement agencies. law.

Preliminary investigations have indicated that some Chinese companies lure people in with the lure of online loans and steal them when they don’t pay back the money.

Money collected in the country would be transferred to China via “hawala” and other modes. This can only be verified with the coordination and cooperation of the national investigating authorities.
