Crime against women in Tripura down under BJP-IPFT govt : Biplab Kumar Deb

Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb Wednesday said that crime against women in the Tripura state has reduced considerably after the BJP- IPFT government initiated a series of strict actions against illegal drug trade.

He criticised the erstwhile Left Front government in the state over its alleged inaction in illegal drug trade, which, the chief minister said, started in the Left regime.

Most incidents of crimes against women were directly related to drug use. We have witnessed a significant fall in crimes against women since the new government started action against illegal drug use, Deb said inaugurating an event to mark International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking here.

“After the use of drugs started reducing, the rate of crime against women also started falling, he said.

The state government claimed to have seized nearly 80,000 metric tons of cannabis compared to records of the last ten years where the figures were less than 8,000.
