With the police and security forces working overtime under the command of the 1987 batch IPS officer,anti crime and anti-Naxal operation continues in Jharkhand.
This IPS officer is acting Director General of Police,MV Rao who has no mercy for Naxals and criminals.

The police have recovered Nepalese currency indicating she had a link with the CPI-ML based in Nepal."It's an eye opener.We are trying to dive deep into their background",said a senior police officer.
Rao,who keeps vigil on the outcome of anti-crime operation 24x7, says that a list of dreaded criminals in the state was prepared and action initiated to arrest them.The arrest of these criminals continue.
'If they(criminals including Naxals) resist and try to act and fire against the police,they will be neutralised",Rao thinks "in public interest.'
