Home and jail minister Babulal Gaur asked the director general of police to conduct an inquiry into the cases of missing children to know if any particular gang is active in kidnapping the children.
Gaur was holding a discussion with director general of police (DGP) Surendra Sinh at his residence here on Monday.
As per an official release, Gaur told the DGP that children going missing was a serious issue.
He said reasons must be found out about missing of girls and boys below 18 years of age in the state. It would be possible only when the missing children were searched speedily. This would make clear whether any gang was involved in this occurence of missing of children or not.
Gaur said incidents of children going missing must be stopped in any case.
He asked the DGP to ensure intensive implementation of traffic rules awareness campaign underway in metro cities of the state since November 14. It should not be a mere formality. Police personnel must be seen on crossings and roads informing drivers and riders about traffic rules.
Gaur also directed the director general of police to intensify night patrolling to put an effective check on nocturnal crimes.
He said entire police force should be made dynamic to build an image of the police in the state.
