Bhubaneswar: Director General of Police (DGP) Dr Rajendra Prasad Sharma today warned students of tough legal action against students indulging in various criminal activities.

The DGP also suggested a set of advisories for the managers of educational institutions as well as parents of the students in order to prevent these illegal practices.
