Itagar, Aug 13: Former Kartaka police chief HT Sanglia has suggested appointment of rural constables who will work as a multi-tasking link between village and the police department for sharing information to b crimils.
Delivering the first ever Aruchal Rat Bomto Kamdak memorial lecture on ‘Policing & Police personnel and Challenges & Reforms’ here on Saturday, Dr Sanglia asked the SPs to appoint at least one constable at the village level.
The former DGP, also an MP from Kartaka, appreciated the Aruchal Pradesh government’s decision to appoint Moyir Basar Kamdak, widow of martyr Bomto Kamdak as a DSP and urged her to lead the society for maintaining peace and tranquillity among the common public and police
personnel, which was the sole objective of her husband.
Stating that police personnel across the country would always remember Bomto for his sacrifice and service toward the society before being killed by miscreants, Dr Sanglia advised the police officers to be available and accessible to the common people 24 hours.
“The job of the police is to ensure safety and security of the society,” he said, reminding senior police officers of their responsibility to set an example for their juniors. Police officers can make people smile with their honesty or become corrupt taking advantage of their uniform, he added.
“If 70 percent of police officers in the state follow Bomto, who was a police officer and a leader of society, there will be a drastic change within the state,” he said and advised the police officers to handle the unruly situation according to the law and with the direction of higher authority.
Thanking Aruchal Initiative group for organising the lecture with Rajiv Gandhi University’s department of Political Science, Basar lamented that Tagiung Yangfo is still at large after being accused of killing her husband a year ago.
Stating that police alone cannot do their duty properly unless they are helped by the public, she said: “From some sources, I came to know that villagers are not cooperating with the police team for arresting Yangfo.”
Admitting the ibility of the police in arresting the accused involved in the murder of Kamdak and Ojing Tayeng, DGP Sandeep Goel said that police was tirelessly working to solve both the cases.
Goel also said the police are exploring several leads to identify the person who killed Migrik Lomi at Lekhi village a few weeks ago.
DSP Kamdak was killed in crossfire at Sangrungwa camp near Yangfo village in Chayang Tajo, the ADC headquarters in East Kameng district.
