    Through this operation, the Acting Inspector General of Police has given instructions to give more priority to carry out operations during the hours from 0800 hours to 1000 hours and from 1700 hours to 1900 hours, when the public mostly use public transport services.

    Here, groups of police officers dressed in civilian clothes will be arranged to travel in buses, and special attention will be paid to the streets, bus stops, railway stations etc.

    The police headquarters states that arrangements have been made to keep groups of police officers in uniforms (especially covering the main roads) ready to provide assistance to the officers travelling in civil clothes when they need assistance.
