This is a beautiful innovation by the Airforce, especially in this festive period, when criminals are lurking around to unleash mayhem. This will serve as a warning to criminal gangs and groups, security agencies in all states should pick a date when such activities will be carried out to access interior places in the state that criminals use as hideouts to carry out evil activities.
