Chandigarh: Differences between the centre and states over the law and order are quite glaring. But a recent stand of Haryana government over tackling the growing cases of child abduction in Mohali-Panchkula-Chandigarh region suggests that even state government are not ready to cooperate with each other.

Punjab government had recently favoured to constitute a committee of the SSPs of Mohali,Chandigarh and Panchkula to deal with the cases. The suggestion was made by the state government in Punjab and Haryana High Court which was hearing a PIL in growing cases of child abduction in the region. The petitioner had demanded to constitute a special police squad to tackle the problem. But in his reply,

Haryana ADGP BS Sandhu said that the state police was ready to cooperate with Mohali and Chandigarh police in this case and a joint interrogation centre could also be set up in Panchkula in Haryana, but expressed reluctance for a Joint Investigation Body for the purpose. Decrying the stand of Haryana Police, the court said that the situation was really pathetic.

The court has adjourned the hearing of the case till 25th March and has asked the concerned parties to come up with their reply after studying the case in detail.
