"Police officers from Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal and Odisha discussed about effective and concerted approach towards the goal of providing better crime management in border areas," a senior police officer, who attended the meeting said.

The meeting also deliberated on issues of localised crimes like sand lifting in border areas, escape of criminals to border states after commission of crimes, transportation of drugs by trains, smuggling of antiquities, activities of Islamic terrorists and problems pertaining to cattle trade, the officer said

Issues like cyber crime, cyber terrorism, fake Indian currency notes circulation, ponzi schemes, human trafficking, drug trafficking, and firearms smuggling were also discussed, he said.

"Methodology on exchange and sharing of criminal intelligence between neighbouring Superintendents of Police was fine-tuned for future, particularly on organised crimes. It was decided to exchange teams from state CIDs to get details of database of interstate criminals/gangs," the officer said.
