They have also been successful in several rescue operations of kidnapped persons.
  2. A.N.T.F. (Anti Narcotic Task  Force): The rise and availability of Narcotics in the country and in particular Shillong, has led to the formation of the ANTF. Several cases of drug peddling and supply have been busted, especially that of Heroine which has led to conviction of the accused in some cases. The war on drugs however is still an uphill task and requires the help and involvement of the public.
  3. A.H.T.U. Anti Human Trafficking Unit: With the rise in children and women being trafficked out of the state to several places especially brothels for Sex and labour, it has became imperative to bust such network and arrest such persons.
