SHILLONG, Dec 25: The saying ‘when the cat is away and the mouse at play’ does not work with the Meghalaya State Police who are always on their toes even in times when the other servants of the State establishments are on a festive overdrive. As usual, the State government has declared a nine day holiday to the government employees for the Christmas season. While the other State departments are the privilege lot, this does not apply to the police department. The personnel, especially in the militant hit districts of Garo Hills are always on the guard to ensure the safe and secure celebrations of Christmas, stated a senior police officer even as he said that there were miniscule leave applications from the men in the field. The Director General of Police (DGP) Rajeev Mehta told The Sentinel, “I am proud of my men who sacrificed their social life in festive occasions and remain committed to the vow of making everyone safe and sound.” “In the militancy infested areas of Garo Hills, no one has lodged a complaint of not getting leave. It’s a testimony of the dedication to make every citizen enjoy the festive occasion without fear,” stated Mehta, while another senior officer added, “We celebrate Christmas too. Not off guard, to allow undesirable elements gets away with any sort of pyrotechnics.” There has been a dismal amount of field operative that have gone for leave-that too if happen is a routine one, informed a source, besides portraying them as buddies who work as per the line duty. If the militants have restrained in their indulgence, that does mean that we should be complacent, stated a senior top cop. The DGP firmly sum up, “We have absolutely no complaint in performing our duties in all occasions”.
