The Warangal Police Commissionerate has become first in the country to achieve the distinction of being free from pending Non Bailable Warrant (NBW), said Commissioner of Police G. Sudheer Babu.
“We have executed a record of 1070 NBWs in 44 days and we are the first in the country to clear all warrants. We have executed over 80 NBWs which were pending for over a decade,” he explained.

Many offenders who skip warrants resort to crime again and again. They appear to have either died or moved away. The police in course of time after prolonged pursuance give up at one point of time. “We reviewed the pendency of NBWs in July and decided to execute every single warrant by August 31 and we did it,” Mr. Sudheer Babu said.
He thanked DGP Anurag Sharma and other higher officials and those at police station level for the success. He also thanked the District Court authorities for their cooperation in achieving the distinction.
Executing the warrants was continous duty of the police but often they keep pending for want of evidence and when the offenders hoodwink the police. It was taken up as a challenge by the police commissionerate and decided to pursue every single warrant henceforth.
“One can be rest assured that all those involved in criminal activity are produced in court. If new warrants come out, we will take them to their logical end. We updated our database of habitual offenders and all their details,” the Police Commissioner said.
It was decided to reward all those who worked for the record at police station level suitably.
