Over 1,000 absconding criminals arrested
Bihar is planning a new legislation to check crime on the lines of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act.
Bihar's Director General of Police, Narayan Mishra, told rediff.com on Monday that there was an aborted attempt to bring into effect a crime control act in the state.

This time, however, the state police are studying the Maharashtra law to put up a solid case for a similar law in Bihar.
Mishra said there were some provisions in MCOCA, which will be effective in Bihar.
Mishra said the Bihar Crime Control Act was effective, but lacked key provisions to check organised crime.
Guide to President's rule
Official sources told rediff.com that Bihar police headquarters is likely to send a proposal to Governor Buta Singh soon.
With the state under President's rule, there is intense pressure on the police to bring the crime rate down.
Reports have said that a fortnight after central rule was imposed, there is no change in the incidence of murder, kidnapping, extortion, looting and rape.
