Chief Minister Manik Saha announced that a Special Task Force (STF) has been established in Tripura to combat organized criminal groups.
The STF will be led by a Superintendent of Police and operate across the entire state and will be under the Crime Branch of the Tripura Police.
CM Saha who also holds the Home portfolio, in a Facebook post said, “The Special Task Force has been constituted to take focused action against organised criminal groups, criminal syndicates, extortion gangs and such other crimes.”
Notably, the formation of the STF by the state government was announced shortly after CM Saha’s meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi.
The Tripura government earlier this week set up the first ever Crime Branch Police Station (CBPS) to investigate cases related to economic offences, serious crime, drugs and narcotics.
