Author, Sanjay Singh, says “The Marathi & Hindi edition of CIU: Criminals in Uniform did exceptionally well among readers.

I am happy with this development related to the web series.”

Executive Editor, Sachin Sharma, HarperCollins India, says “For a book as gripping and entertaining as CIU, it is organic to be created into a web series. The producers have a task ahead of them in matching this brilliant book with an equally great web series.”

This story is filled with great suspense, full of twists and turns and a fantastic climax.
