DIMAPUR, March 6: The galand government on Friday ordered a judicial probe into Thursday’s incident where a mob broke into the high-security central jail here and lynched a rape accused.
The government also suspended the deputy commissioner and superintendent of police of Dimapur district for their failure to tackle the situation.
galand Chief Minister TR Zeliang, who chaired a cabinet meeting on Friday, said: “It is highly condemble incident. The cabinet decided to suspend the deputy commissioner and superintendent of police of Dimapur district immediately for their failure to tackle the situation.”
“The deputy commissioner and superintendent of police should have taken pre-emptive measures to contain the situation. But they have failed,” he said.
Zeliang said fresh orders have been issued to all the deputy commissioners and superintendents of police in the state to protect the non-locals, particularly people belonging to minority communities. IANS
