‘Proceedings initiated for declaring them as proclaimed offenders’
Jammu, Feb 06: In a bid to tighten the noose around the absconding ‘criminals’, who are on the continuous run to evade their arrest and face the investigation or trial in the Court of law for judicial determination, Crime Branch Jammu on Saturday said that it has been acting tough against them by initiating proceedings for declaring them as proclaimed offenders under sections 82/ 83 CrPC through the Court of Law.
