The State Crime Records Bureau has traced 108 people and helped them reunite with their families across the country.
According to Seema Agarwal, ADGP, Tamil Nadu State Crime Records Bureau, the process of reuniting the missing persons with their families began in 2015. “We were initially approached by NGOs that shelter homeless people to post the details of those missing persons in our website so that their relatives could trace them,” she said in a video, posted on Facebook.
“They also requested the SCRB to help them trace details of people who were staying with them from other States like Jharkhand. We felt it would be difficult because SCRB is not an investigative agency.” The video also shows how they handled their first case in January 2016.
According to Inspector A.S. Thahira, the bureau has now started looking into cases of missing teenagers. “We are taking all efforts to reunite them with their families. The public should support us in our efforts and inform the nearest police station or a social worker in case they find any homeless person on the streets,” Thahira said.
