On the occasion of 11th batch training programme, KB Singh, DGP, said, “Cases for instance of Dhalasamant brothers and Ramesh Jena are not simply criminal cases. The accused have created a full gang of sympathizers and associates.
The officers should be fully aware of technology and economy aspects.”
