Bihar police may take lessons from the recently released Rani Mukerji starrer 'Mardaani' to check human trafficking in the state.
The state CID Inspector General (Weaker Section) Arvind Pandey issued instructions to all district SPs, GRP SPs and Commandants of Bihar Military Police (BMP) yesterday to arrange shows of the movie for their subordinate police officials to take lessons from it. "Human trafficking is a very serious global issue. Several aspects like sex trade, organ trade, as well as, child and bonded labour are related to this highly organised crime. The way the protagonist in 'Mardaani' busts the network of traffickers is commendable. Police personnel can take lessons from it," Pandey told PTI today.
Pandey, who has considerable experience in tackling crime against weaker sections of the society including women and children, had gone to watch the movie a couple of days ago for entertainment, but it ended up being an eye-opener for him. "We have busted human trafficking networks in Bihar and rescued a large number of children and women. The police personnel have to work in dangerous circumstances while undertaking such operations, but at the same time they require to have the highest levels of emotions, intelligence and efficiency. Rani Mukerji's role in the movie is an example of it," Pandey said.
In his letter to the SP rank officers, Pandey has written that Mukerji, portraying a senior inspector, demolished an entire gang of human traffickers with much efficiency. "The measures adopted by her are fit to be followed. Station House Officers and other police officials can increase their efficiency with regard to anti-human trafficking work by implementing them," he wrote in his letter.
He said the Supreme Court and all High Courts were giving utmost priority to the issue of human trafficking and the SC had asked the cases of all missing children to be treated as cases of human trafficking.
