From a correspondent
Agartala, Nov 30: The Tripura police has entered into a squabble with the tiol Women Commission (NWC) when the Director General of Police Akhil Kumar Sukla refused to submit any report to this tiol level statutory constitutiol body.
“Tripura police is authorized to submit reports only to the Chief Secretary of the State and Secretary to the Ministry of Home Affairs. We are not obliged to submit any report to any other organizations,” he said during his meeting here on Wednesday with Sushma Sahu, a member of the NWC.
On August 8, the NCW in a letter had asked the DGP to submit a report on eight cases of alleged atrocities against women. But Sahu did not receive any reply so far. Sahu, who was on a two-day visit to Tripura, met the DGP to know the status of the letter.
Later, addressing a press conference, she reacted sharply for not receiving any response to the letter.
She said: “I will bring this matter to the notice of the Union Home Minister on what the State police chief has stated on the work culture of the police in Tripura.”
She said the NWC had also sent two reminders to the DGP in the last one month, seeking a report on eight cases of alleged atrocities against women.
“He could have informed us in writing that the department concerned is not authorized to submit reports to any organizations,” she said while questioning the work culture of the Tripura police.
Sahu said the tiol Women Commission is concern over the allegations of atrocities against women in Tripura. She has visited several places to meet the victims, she added.
She said: “The commission has sought report from the State police only to verify the authenticity of the allegations. But the manner in which the State police has refused to co-operate is unfortute.”
