:After the controversial termination of 20 under trainee of the first Mahila (Women) IR battalion, the state Police Headquarter had instituted a medical board recently to re-examine the case and the report is expected soon. “We have instituted a medical board headed by chief medical officer of the police department” to re-examine the case of the 20 under trainee Mahila Bn personnel who were discharged after they were tested positive for pregnancy test. The finding report of the medical board is expected today or tomorrow, the DGP, K Kire revealed while talking to Nagaland Post on Tuesday. He also admitted that there were certain procedural flaws in the termination of the service of the 20 under trainees. All the new recruits of the Mahila Bn took an undertaking declaring that they would complete their training in two years time, he said. Kire also admitted the possibilities that those personnel tested positive in the pregnancy test might have terminated their pregnancy by now and added in that case the PHQ might be compelled to take back the discharged personnel depending on the report of the medical board. It may be mentioned that the first ever exclusive women (Mahila) IRB raised in the state earlier this year was caught in a controversy following the forced discharge. The aggrieved personnel complained of gender biasness and unfair treatment. Several women organizations including the State Women Commission demanded that the state PHQ immediately institute a thorough probe into the issue.
