On January 25, the city police started ‘Marpu’, a programme designed to delete the names of rowdy-sheeters from the history sheets, after a thorough check of their behaviour and give them a second chance.
In Visakhapatnam, there are about 440 persons listed under the history sheets at various police stations.
A commissionerate-level committee consisting of jurisdictional DCP (law and order), ADCP (City Special Branch) and ACP Task Force, was formed for the purpose.
