Cuttack: Odisha Crime Branch will launch ‘Operation Muskaan-3’ on Saturday to trace missing children within and outside the state.
B.K. Sharma, Special Director General of Crime Branch, informed that the month long ‘Operation Muskaan-3’, which should have started on July 1 like the previous two years, was delayed due to the Ratha Jatra.
