In an effort to tackle the increasing extortion and kidnapping cases in the state particularly Dimapur and Kohima, the state government has decided to constitute a Special Command and Control Board to be headed by an IGP.
Imchen said the special security operation was necessitated to control the prevailing situation of rampant extortion and kidnapping. With the prevailing situation, the state police will have to act tough, he said and appealed the public to bear with such exercise and also to render all possible assistance and cooperation to the police.
Pointing out that the civil societies, government and opposition party were quarrelling when crimes such as robbery, theft, extortion, kidnapping take place, the home minister said rather they should try to assist the police to identify the culprit and apprehend them.
Referring to the closure of business and taking out procession in Dimapur by the business community over the recent kidnapping of a businessman, Imchen said shutting down business do not help anybody but rather disturbed the normal life of the innocent citizens.
He also regretted that the public were hardly coming forward with complaints in spite of the continued request by the state police to pass on information on any perceptible threat.
He said even victims often do not share information on how they were made to suffer and that police has to dig out the details themselves. Imchen also said it was demoralizing for the police that the courts often grant bail and release the culprits when they were caught after difficulty.
The home minister lauded the state police for their commendable job and appealed the people to appreciate and assist them instead of “slapping or using abusive language” at them.
Reacting to various statements from the opposition Congress in recent times, Imchen Imchen said he was amused that the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) was lecturing the DAN government on how to run and manage the affairs of the state. “The people of Nagaland have experienced their rules and their government for a long time and the people minds are still fresh,” he said.
He also expressed “shock” on the statement of NPCC president S. I. Jamir asking non-local businessmen in the state to report to the government of India on what was happening in Nagaland. “Perhaps, the Congress party, they know only English phrases like ‘drop from ministry,’ ‘dismiss,’ ‘step down’ or ‘resign’.” He said the Congress used these four phrases everytime. “It is understandable that they are still under the ruling syndrome and cannot accept the reality of being in the opposition,” Imkong castigated. DGP Nagaland and home commissioner were also present in the press briefing.
