Talking about the success of the sector-sealing scheme in areas like Sector 22,the SSP indicated that the same may also be implemented in other sectors.

“In case of vehicle theft,we now flash messages to Panchkula and Mohali. A dedicated wing of the Crime Branch will look after vehicle thefts,” added Srivastava.
