The capital police claimed to have nabbed 42 absconders wanted in various cases. The arrests were made during last two weeks in separate crackdowns against outlaws. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Yousuf Malik had ordered his subordinates to arrest all the proclaimed offenders from their respective jurisdictions. The SSP had also directed all the sub divisional police officers (SDPOs) and station house officers (SHOs) to launch massive crackdown against proclaimed offenders and absconders. As many as 42 absconding outlaws including 11 proclaimed offenders and 31 court absconders were apprehended during the last fortnight. This is another way forward for the capital police. I believe the media should give spotlight to the police force that has been performing for a long time now. The higher authorities should also reward them just to keep them motivated and energized.
