Policing in Malegaon
Malegaon has always been wrongly termed as a ``sensitive town'' by the media and intelligence department itself. However, the city which has a population of more than eight lakh people has just six police stations with a total staff of around 1,500 police personnel. Cases registered with the police stations range from cheating, theft, house breaking to murder. Maximum number of cases are reported under the ``theft'' column of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
