Dimapur, January 11 (MExN): Dimapur Police registered a total of 1,113 cases (see table for details) in 2016, the highest amongst the districts within Nagaland.
A press release from Addl. Deputy Commissioner of Police/PRO, Dimapur stated that the increase in the case registration is largely attributed to the various pro-active policing as evident in the increased number of cases detected for offences under the NLTP (Nagaland Liquor Total Prohibition) Act; increased detection of cases of extortion by the Anti Extortion Cells; other offences.
Pointing out that all missing reports and complaints are to be registered as regular cases as per the guidelines of the apex court, he said, “The increase in number of cases under the crime head – ‘Kidnapping & Abduction’ thus, is attributed to this factor.”
Offence under ‘Theft’, the release added, continues to constitute the bulk of the cases registered. These cases include lost/theft of all types of items reported.
