Nagaland Dy. CM asks for enquiry on erring policemen

Nagaland Dy. CM asks for enquiry on erring policemen

Kohima, Jan 18 (UNI) Nagaland Deputy Chief Minister Y. Patton, who also in charge of the Home Department, took serious note of the reported firing incident by two Indian Reserve Battalion (IRB) personnel on duty at Peren town on January 16 and directed the Director-General of Police to immediately conduct thorough enquiry into the incident and to submit its report to the Government within 72 hours.



In a statement issued by the Deputy Chief Minister Office media cell informed that the Deputy Chief Minister has also directed the DGP to take stern and deterrent action against the duo as per the service jurisprudence.

Official sources said that one Havildar and a Constable were placed under suspension on January 17, while disciplinary proceedings were being contemplated under the Nagaland Services (Discipline & Appeal) Rules, 1967.

The charge against the Havildar was “unwarranted firing in a busy marketplace, while on duty under the influence of alcohol” and the charge against the Constable was “quarrelling with his superior officer under the influence of alcohol while on duty.”



Strongly condemning the alleged criminal act by the two IRB personnel in uniform, the Deputy Chief Minister said that the Government would not tolerate such indiscipline.

He said that once their guilt was established, an exemplary and deterrent action would be taken as per the law of the land.

“The hard-earned good image of the State Police Force shall not be allowed to tarnish by some errant personnel at any cost,” Patton stated.

The Deputy Chief Minister has assured that befitting punitive action would be taken as per the law of the land and appealed to all responsible to cooperate with the Department, it said.
