Hyderabad: The Telangana Police has claimed to trace over 85% of cases of missing people in 2018. The Telangana police had sent out a statement after a media report was making the rounds which said that missing cases are on the rise in Telangana.

Trying to put an end to those claims, the Telangana Police said that they treat a missing person’s case just as important as one with a criminal offence.

"All possible efforts have been made by the police with the help of the family members in tracking and tracing the missing persons. It is not correct to say that police has been neglecting the cases of investigation of missing persons", Telangana police said in a statement.

"The reasons for missing cases include the announcement of examination results, love affairs, family disputes, financial reasons, lack of care of the aged parents by the children, etc. All Patrol Vehicles, Blue Colts, Beat Officers, investigation officers are provided with the photographs of the missing persons using technology for a thorough search and tracking in all localities throughout the state. In fact, the Facial Recognition System (FRS) is being used extensively for identifying and tracing the missing persons in Telangana State. Telangana State Police is a pioneer in the use of Technology for tracing the missing persons," it further stated.

The Inspector General of Police (Women Safety) Swathi Lakra said that the Telangana Police also conducts Statewide special drives for tracking of missing children regularly under the banner of "Operation Smile" and "Operation Muskan" in coordination with all stakeholder departments.
