In addition to this, police commissioners/ district police chiefs will coordinate with Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for speedy procurement of lab reports related with the crime.

A monitoring cell will also be constituted in the office of every police commissioner or district police chief for monitoring of cases identified.This cell will be headed by a gazetted officer who will ensure speedy trial of cases identified under ‘Operation Conviction’. This cell will monitor daily progress of cases.

A web portal is also being developed for weekly review of the cases identified so that senior police officials at the DGP office in the state capital can also monitor the progress of these cases.
