Observing that today's terrorists were "more sophisticated" with transnational linkages and adequate resources, Nagaland Governor K Sankaranarayanan Monday underscored the importance to improve surveillance and intelligence to ensure that terrorist elements do not get support from within. "There are several strains of terrorism present, and you will need to keep abreast of developments in this regard. Both knowledge and determination are required if we are to succeed against these elements," Sankaranarayanan said, while delivering his speech on the occasion of Passing Out Parade of Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) probationers and Sub Inspectors at the North East Police Academy (NEPA) here. Stating that the "most dangerous threat" today was terrorism as exemplified by the way the Mumbai attacks were planned and executed, the Nagaland Governor said terrorists did not belong to any religion or community. "Their only religion is terror and we have to improve our surveillance and intelligence to ensure that such elements do not get any support from within," he said. The 33rd batch of basic course for DySP Probationers and Sub Inspectors of Police consisting 132 police officers from Nagaland, Manipur and Tripura passed out of the NEPA in a spectacular ceremonial parade today. These trainee officers had commenced their one year basic training in the Academy with effect from January 21 this year. They were trained on a well researched module approved by the Bureau of Police Research and Development, Government of India. "As young officers, please make all out efforts to change the image of the police and make it a force that looks after one and all. A force that marshals the best that is there in science and technology for upholding the rule of law," he said, even as he reminded that the police are cast in the role of an investigator, not a judge. Commenting on the decades old insurgency problem in the North Eastern states, Sankaranarayanan said, "The nuance of each situation must be appreciated and skillfully dealt with and the problems in the North east are different." Earlier, the Nagaland Governor reviewed the parade and presented medals and trophies to the trainees who did their best during the training.
