Designation: INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE

2. Brief About Organisation

The State of Jharkhand came into being on the 15th of November, 2000, but many of the regions that constitute Jharkhand had been afflicted by the scourge of extremism since much before that. The terrain of Jharkhand is predominantly hilly, forested, and dissected by several rivers and water courses. Many of the areas are relatively inaccessible, or difficult to access, by road or rail. Before the formation of Jharkhand, the areas under it had suffered an imbalance in regional development. The social and economic conditions otherwise were also conducive to perceived grievances. The combination of these conditions was a fertile medium for extremism to flourish. At present large parts of Jharkhand are seriously afflicted by extremism.

Taking pro-active initiative, the Government of Jharkhand through Home Dept. Notification No. 8C-203/07-748/Ranchi dated 19 Feb. 2008 sanctioned the creation of 20 Assault Groups of Special Task Force (STF) for eradication of extremist activities in Jharkhand. This force was later given the distinctive name of “Jharkhand Jaguar” (JJ), and also a distinctive uniform. Acknowledging the utility of JJ, subsequently the Govt. of Jharkhand again through Home Department Notification No. 8/C-202/09-1194/Ranchi dated 22.10.2009 sanctioned the creation of 20 Assault Groups in JJ, of which 2 have been raised so far. Thus the sanctioned number of Assault Groups (AGs) in JJ is 40, of which 22 are functional at present. Three more AGs are likely to be created shortly.
