Telangana tops in the law and order maintenance in the country, claims the Telangana Home Minister Mohd Mahmood Ali.

The large number of police officers including DGP Mahendar Reddy, Secretary Home Affairs Ravi Gupta and other senior officials including the city Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar attended the meeting.
