Itagar, May 20: Following mounting pressure from various quarters, the Aruchal Pradesh government yesterday put former SP of Tirap district Jasmeet Singh under suspension for his alleged manhandling of a BJP leader without any provocation on May 16 last.

Deputy Chief Minister Kameng Dolo in a statement today said that the government would not allow disturbing the peace and tranquillity of the state because of wrong conduct of any responsible law keepers.

Urging the people to maintain calm and peace, Dolo, who also holds the Home portfolio, said Jasmeet Singh has been put under immediate suspension as a discipliry proceeding against him for his wrong conduct.

“He will not leave the state capital without obtaining prior permission from the state government,” Dolo said quoting the official order.

There was a growing demand for his suspension from various civil societies, like All Aruchal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU), Aruchal Citizen Rights (ACR), for the alleged manhandling of a senior citizen by the SP, which has created fear psychosis and apprehensions amongst the peace-loving tribal people of the state. Earlier, immediately after the incident, Dolo transferred Singh to police headquarters here.
