Itanagar: Union Minister Kiren Rijiju said that a mechanism will be soon worked out in Arunachal Pradesh so that Army, paramilitary forces and civil police can work in seamless coordination in the state.

“I have already talked with Chief Minister Pema Khandu and Governor Brig (Retd) Dr B D Mishra on the matter and will definitely do it,” he told reporters here Wednesday in response to a question on the incident between police and personnel of Second Arunachal Scout at Bomdila on November 2 last.

The union Minister of State for Home was here to flag off the second edition of Dalmia MTB (Mountain Terrain Bike) Arunachal challenge, which will start on Thursday from Itanagar and culminate at Mechukha in West Siang district.

On the report submitted to state DGP by Bomdila SP stating that during the incident two army personnel pointed out LMG at him and even fired two rounds in the air, Rijiju informed that the same report was also submitted to him and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman at Bomdila.

“The army has instituted a court of inquiry and we will know the real fact only after the inquiry report is submitted. At this juncture it is not advisable to blame anybody or take anyone’s side. This is a sensitive matter… Clashes between army and police is not good for the country as both are serving the nation,” Rijiju said.

“The matter should not be fabricated as it is a serious matter… there was a misunderstanding as the situation could not be properly handled at the local level. Relation between army and police need to be cordial at the highest level for the benefit of the country,” he added.
