Itagar, June 5: Clarifying on the arrests made by Aalo police of 7 IRBn personnel for assaulting a Town Magistrate on May 27 last, the Attu Dhassang Welfare Society (ADWS) has stated that the prime accused John Tawe and Aman Longling were not on duty when the incident took place.
The Society in a press release informed that both John and Aman were off duty and were away from the barrack drinking beer in order to relax and when they came to know the presence of night patrolling team, keeping their self respect and regards to officers and colleague on duty, they started walking away from the patrolling team, but the magistrate with his team on duty resorted to lathi charge which led to the exchange of arguments.
Adding that the facts and figures were completely twisted on the local dailies, ADWS said that on hearing the incident the colleagues of John and Aman have rushed for intervention to cool down the situation, but the situation turned ugly.
“The C Company was not called to assault and challenge the officers on duty, it was completely twisted in the news as per the facts and figures available through many sources,” asserted ADWS Information & Publicity Secretary Aman Passang.
Condemning the termition of the jawans, the Society stated that the department has violated the principles of tural justice as per the Article 311 of Constitution of India wherein no person shall be dismissed or removed or reduced in rank except after an inquiry in which he has been informed of the charges against him and given a reasoble opportunity of being heard in respect of those charges.
ADWS further appealed for a proper investigation on the incident and requested the authority to withdraw the termition order of all the jawans.
