Shajapur (Madhya Pradesh): To eradicate crime by Kanjar community and to wean young minds from criminal and anti-social activities, Shajapur police has taken a new initiative in order to channelise their energies in a positive way so that they could be brought into the mainstream of the society.

Under the programme, the police held special awareness drive ‘Kanjar social reform conference’ in Kanjar-dominated areas of Madhopur and Deora villages on Sunday, where SP Jagdish Davar advised people belonging to the Kanjar tribe, a downtrodden community to leave anti-social, criminal activities and urged them to join the mainstream of the society.

He also informed them about various facilities being provided in government departments and welfare schemes of the government. The SP administered an oath to Kanjar people to abstain from criminal activities and also distributed stationary items among children to promote education among them.
