Against the backdrop of recent incidents involving Assam Rifles and IRB personnel in Dimapur, DGP, K. Kire on Thursday said that incidents involving different security personnel was a matter of serious concern.
It may be mentioned that on January 15 Assam Rifles and Indian Reserve Battalion (IRB) had an altercation near Deluxe point, Dimapur and on January 19 night when two persons, one an army jawan identified as S. Robinson Komuo of 2nd Assam Regiment and a friend Koda Leow were reportedly manhandled and assaulted by IR jawans near the flyover, while returning from railway station after booking a railway ticket.
The DGP said that the police department would investigate Wednesday night’s incident which occurred near the railway station. He said a probe has been initiated by the district police and after the report reached PHQ, the erring personnel taken to task, as per the FIR filed by the duo at East Police station, Dimapur.
On complaints of IR personnel venting their frustration on civilians, Kire said there was no possibility of IR personnel getting frustrated as they were not over burdened by duties.
He said police has sufficient security personnel in the state, and that the IRBs were given sufficient rest and allowances when deployed by the state.
Kire said the IRB personnel were doing a commendable job across the state but that a few ‘black sheep’ indulge spoil the reputation of the entire battalion.
Commenting on the main objective of raising IRBs ,KIre said that the IRBs were to be deployed anywhere in the country, whenever asked by the MHA. He, however, said that the IRBs could be utilized by the state when not deployed as per MHA requirements.
The DGP said IRBs were basically raised and funded by the MHA at the initial stages but the state was responsible when on state duty.
Meanwhile, SP Dimapur Z. Mero said investigation has been initiated on the January 15 incident even though there was no arrest.
Mero also said such incidents were a matter of concern and proper care has to be taken to avoid such occurrence.
Mero also said the district police could not directly intervene in the functioning of the IRBs as they were under the command of respective unit commanders.
