BELLARY: Home Minister M P Prakash’s home district Bellary, does not have a dog squad for past two months. And blissfully, it will remain same for next seven more months!!
Being a naxalite prone district, this imperative squad must be in an alert stage round the clock. But because of the lack of forethought of concerned officials, now the capacious district Bellary looks at its neighbouring districts for a dog squad!
Because of flourishing mining and industrial units, political and economic rivalry and also from its geographical specialties, the Iron City of India, Bellary, has been attracting naxalites and anti-social elements generally.
Other than that, since past few years’ heinous crimes like robbery, dacoity and murders are rampant. Moreover, Bellary houses world famous Hampi, Tunga Bhadra Dam, Hampi University, multi thousand crores worth Bellary Thermal Power Station.
But, Bellary cops are facing series of problems to trace culprits, becausethey do not have a full-fledged dog squad.
