Replying to a query ‘whether it is also a fact that many criminals enter neighbouring states after committing crimes’, the minister said to deal with inter-state movement of criminals, inter-state coordination meetings at police headquarters level are regularly organised for sharing criminal intelligence and inputs about suspected terrorist/ sympathizer/harbours hideouts.
Besides, such coordination meetings are also held at District DCP level with Districts of neighbouring states, the minister said in further elaborating on details of measures taken in coordination with the police of neighbouring states.
