Hyderabad: To control drug smuggling and human trafficking, investigating officials should focus on unravelling the trail from the source to the destination, which will help unearth the racket from the roots, said Rachakonda police commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat. He was speaking at a ‘Meet the Press’ programme after he was recently given the US’ State Trafficking in Persons Hero award, for his work towards rescuing child labour and preventing child marriages.

He said he was more happy when candidates mentored by him achieved success in the civils exam. Mr Bhagwat said it was not possible to make a crime-free society, but the police in coordination with government agencies and partnership with citizens could make the city a safer place. “Though we do not have a permanent office from where we can operate, our hearts are always there to provide best services to the citizens. With people-friendly initiatives, we are reaching out to people from various walks of life.” he said. He said the Rachakonda police would soon have a headquarters built in the heart of the commissionerate and the final proposals were awaiting approval.

 

He said human trafficking, drug abuse and food adulteration were organised crimes. “People involved in the transit are caught, but the organisers and end receivers go scot-free. To handle this, a source-to-destination strategy should be implemented. We have achieved results in major cases like unearthing a ganja smuggling racket from Vizag to Mumbai through Hydera-bad,” he said.
