SVC alleges Assam police highhandedness

DIMAPUR, MAY 8 (NPN) | Publish Date: 5/8/2020 12:41:13 PM IST

Sangtamtilla Village Council (SVC) has sought immediate intervention of the state government into the alleged highhandedness of the Assam police along the interstate border.

In a memorandum to DC Dimapur, SVC chairman Asemba Mongzar and Sangtamtilla village head GB Litingse stated that since the state border has been sealed on account of COVID-19 pandemic, the village council along with home guards and IRB personnel were continuing their duty.
However, SVC said that one Debo Sharma, head GB of Tilla bosti, Karbi Anglong, had opposed to COVID-19 duty and kept on reporting the matter to Assam authorities resulting in Assam police arriving at the area on four occasions and directing the removal of the camp from the area. On May 8 around 10 a.m., SVC said Assam police led by ADC Diphu and SP Diphu along with 25-30 police personnel “forcefully” dismantled the gate, which was also witnessed by SDO Sadar, ACP Zone-II, office in-charge urban police station, Dimapur. 
SVC pointed out that the residents of the Sangtamtilla village and council were doing the duty not only for village public, but for the entire state. However, SVC said that they were being “physically and mentally tortured” by the Assam police supported by one Debo Sharma. SVC has, therefore, appealed to the state government to immediately intervene on the issue, failing which they would be compelled to take law into their own hands.
