Mangaldai Police Reserve has a vast fertile area lying unused. It is high time and need of the hour that the police wives should unite under one umbrella in the form of a cooperative and the district police will offer all possible support and cooperation in their community venture ,” said Darrang superintendent of Police Amrit Bhuyan while addressing a specially arranged meeting of the police wives in the conference hall of the Police Reserve on Friday.
