Cattle Rustling

Traditionally, cattle rustling (theft) is one of the general crime of the district. Previously, cattle rustlers were committing cattle theft by foot or by using horses. "Khoji" (foot-tracker) was the main man who used to assist the Police in detecting the criminals by using the criminal’s foot-prints and patterns. "Thekri-pehra" (volunteer village watchmen) used to work as an effective strategy for prevention of this crime. Time has changed. Now Cattle rustlers are mostly armed with lethal weapons. Mostly, they steal but sometimes they snatch on gun-point and take the victims along as a hostage. With the changing method of crime, the strategy of the Police is changing as well.
