From our correspondent
Itanagar, Sept 12: Arunachal Pradesh IGP (Admn) Manish Kumar Agrawal on Monday inaugurated a week-long training programme on “Investigation of Murder and Homicide Case” at Police Training Centre (PTC), Banderdewa.
Addressing the inaugural session, Agrawal congratulated the PTC staff for taking a big step by opening its doors to the police forces of the neighbouring States. “It is a step in the direction of the Chief Minister’s vision to make the PTC a state of art centre in line with Shillong-based North East Police Academy (NEPA),” he said.
 He hoped that Arunachal Police would get to interact with officers of other police forces and learn from their best practices. He thanked BPR&D, New Delhi and NEPA for their contribution in this course and thanked the DGP for envisioning and planning the training programme.
The IGP further appealed to all the trainees to be sincere and acquire knowledge towards smart policing and proper investigation of cases.
Earlier, PTC Principal Dr Navdeep S Brar said that the Centre has so far trained 45 batches of constable recruits, who are providing yeomen services in maintaining law and order in Arunachal Pradesh.
APP is conducting the week-long course in collaboration with BPR&D under the scheme of Developing Scientific Investigator (DSI). The DSI scheme is a new initiative of BPR&D under Smart Policing, as envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Under the scheme, BPR&D had sought nominations from all the states for holding the course and entrusted PTC Banderdewa with this opportunity.
The training module will cover various aspects of scientific investigation tools such as forensic evidence from scene of crime, brain mapping, DNA analysis, medico-legal aspects and law and procedures.
