New Delhi: Country`s first woman IPS
officer Kiran Bedi on Saturday said absence of preventive policing
was resulting in crimes like gangrape committed by repeat
offenders.

"Crimes such as gangrape etc committed by repeat
offenders is proof of absence of preventive policing.

to murder and gangrape, allegedly abducting and raping a
