Jotsoma Youth Organisation (JYO) has alleged unauthorised collection of money by Kohima traffic police at landslide area (Kezhanu), Jotsoma and demanded that the district administration take necessary action against the traffic police personnel on duty.

In a complaint letter addressed to the deputy commissioner (DC) Kohima, JYO president Khrieto Peseyie and secretary Rokozhalie Gwirie claimed that Kohima traffic police personnel on the night of July 16, 2019 at around 6-7:30pm collected money from heavy vehicles to cross the landslide. 
Claiming that the illegal activity was going on for the last two weeks, the JYO said traffic police were collecting Rs 100 up to Rs 2000 depending on the load capacity of the trucks. Further, JYO stated following report of heavy traffic jam along NH-29 on July 16 evening, youth volunteers led by its president rushed down to help regulate the vehicles to cross its jurisdiction without hardship. 
On verifying the cause of the jam, JYO said the volunteers caught a traffic police personnel collecting money from each trucks to cross the sinking area of the road. On further interrogation, JYO said the traffic police personnel admitted that they were collecting money just for “chai pani” expenditure. 
In this regard, JYO wondered whether the collection by the Kohima traffic police personnel was authorised by the district administration? “If the collection is not authorised, we request you to take necessary action against the Traffic Police personnel on duty as their unauthorised and illegal activities had caused untold misery to the travellers,” JYO demanded. JYO expressed hope that action taken by the administration would be intimated to the organisation for better coordination to help the general public.
