Uttar Pradesh: Fearing police action, nearly 10,000 criminals head back to jail

The Uttar Pradesh government led by Yogi Adityanath has released a new set of data, which claims a significant reduction of crimes in Uttar Pradesh till July of this year, reports The Economic Times.

The report says that almost 10,000 criminals in the state have surrendered and are back in jail after cancelling their bail. According to the report, the number of rape cases has been reduced to 2,444 in the six-month period from January to June of this year from 2,614 in the corresponding period last year. There was also a slight reduction in murder cases to 2,505 this year as compared to 2,462 and 2,766 in the past two years respectively.

Chandra Mohan, the UP BJP Spokesperson said, “An effective campaign has been launched across criminals in the state leading to 63 dreaded criminals being killed and 650 were injured in encounters and 3430 wanted criminals being arrested and sent to jail. In the year 2018 so far, 9866 criminals have got their bail cancelled and presented themselves before courts to go to jail. 14746 criminals were booked under the Gangsters Act. Criminals no longer have political shelter. A good atmosphere has been created for investment”.

Yogi government after taking charge of the Uttar Pradesh government seems to have been successful in regulating law and order in the state, which had deteriorated over the years. This is not the first time the criminals have cancelled their bail, as recently nearly 5,500 criminals got their bails cancelled, fearing action by the police.

The DGP of UP, Om Prakash Singh said that from March 2017 to January 2018, a whopping 1,331 encounters were conducted by the UP police, as a result of which 3,091 criminals were arrested and 43 were killed. Apart from this recently, two dreaded in UP, Salim Ali and Irshad Ahmed, fearing the action by the Yogi Adityanath led government had carried placards and marched around town with vows to stay away from crimes.
