A senior Meghalaya police officer who was severely injured in a road mishap at Naharbari in Dimapur on December 31 last has been suspended for ‘dereliction of duty’, an official said today. Superintendent of Police in-charge South Garo Hills, Darwin M Sangma, who visited Dimapur, the commercial hub of Nagaland, with his security guards and an unidentified girl, was suspended for visiting another state without the knowledge of the state government. “The government suspended him for dereliction of duty and going out to another state without the approval of the government,” a police officer, who wished not to be named, said. Sangma is recuperating at a hospital in Dimapur. Police officials said Sangma’s visit to Dimapur came to the knowledge of the senior police officials in the Police headquarters here only after he was severely injured in a vehicle crash on New Year’s Eve. Meanwhile, the police department has decided to constitute a departmental inquiry into the entire incident. It may be recalled that Sangma and five others including a local girl were injured when the Gypsy (ML02-2633) in which they were traveling collided with an oncoming Tavera Chevrolet (NL07-8522) on December 31.
