Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Though 60 listed criminals were externed from the district limits in last two months and model code of conduct (MCC) is still in force in Madhya Pradesh, stabbing incidents continue to occur unabated in the state capital.

The knife stabbings are a routine in Bhopal, which continued in full swing before and after Lok Sabha election, which ended on May 13 in Madhya Pradesh. In all, 29 stabbing incidents were reported from across the city, particularly from Old City areas, blowing the lid off the police’s claim of tightening the noose on listed criminals to ensure smooth conduct of election.

The recent attack on a listed criminal near Alpana Trijunction by another rival group in the wee hours of Monday has jolted Bhopal. Days after MCC was enforced, Bhopal police stated that close to 12,000 arms were deposited at all the 36 police stations of the city and listed criminals were put behind bars.

What is questionable is that if Bhopal police conducted combing drives and claimed to have arrested listed criminals, how stabbing incidents continue to occur.
