Met targets South Asian criminals

PUBLISHED June 15, 2004

Scotland Yard is setting up a unit to tackle crime carried out by, and on, South Asians in Britain.

It will be based on Operation Trident - the Met unit which specialises in gun crime in London's black communities.
Documents obtained by BBC News show kidnappings, drug crime and the use of firearms, including sub-machine guns, are on the increase among South Asians.
