The Home Department, headed by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, has asked the director general of police and the Mumbai police commissioner to issue orders regarding the appointments.

A government order issued yesterday said, district superintendents of police and deputy commissioners of police (in commissionerates) will act as nodal officers across the state to prevent such incidents.

The order said, a nodal officer will have to set up a Special Task Force to get confidential s on elements spreading hatred and fake news, resorting to violence and making provocative comments.

The move comes against the backdrop of lynching of five men on suspicion of child lifting in Dhule district of north Maharashtra on 1st July.
