About 100 DGPs and IGPs of states and CPOs may gather in Hyderabad on November 25-27 to discuss a host of issues, including cross-border terrorism and radicalization of youths. The PM will chair the meeting. And he along with Home Minister Rajnath Singh will interact with these officers to get their feedback about the prevailing internal security situation and various aspects of police personnel.
This will be for the third time since independence that the conference is held outside Delhi – first in Guwahati in 2014 and Kutch in Gujarat in 2015. The idea of holding the meeting of DGPs/IGPs to gather in Hyderabad for annual meeting outside Delhi was first mooted by NaMo after he assumed power in 2014.
Issues like cross-border terrorism, radicalization of youths and attempts to lure Indians into Middle-East terrorist group ISIS will top the agenda of the meeting being hosted by the Intelligence Bureau, official sources said.
Filling up of vacant posts in various police forces, reforms in police forces, circulation of fake Indian currency notes, smuggling of narcotics and human trafficking will also be discussed threadbare during the two-day conference, the sources said.
