FROM OUR STAFF CORRESPONDENT
SHILLONG, Dec 31: In spite of the series of success against the anti-tiol and crimil elements, Meghalaya Director General of Police (DGP) Rajeev Mehta categorically stated that there are still many tasks left to be accomplished by the state police.
The virtual wiping out of the AMEF, the unconditiol surrender of the UALA in the past two months is considered to be an achievement.
“We still have an incomplete task of bringing about long lasting peace in Garo Hills and the rest of the State”, the DGP told The Sentinel on the last day of the year.
He expressed hope that the policy adopted by the police department is expected to reap benefit by next year.
Asked on whether it will be in the form of ruthless operations or diplomacy that the police department will adopt in completing the unfinished task, Mehta said, “I am not going to divulge anything but our force will go all out to bring peace”.
The proscribed Garo tiol Liberation Army (GNLA) led by Sohan D Shira is a militant group to be reckon with. Acknowledging the reality, Mehta said that the sustained pressure on the groups in all formats will be carried out to pin them down till a point of surrender.
