Y Patton fetes police personnel for nabbing hit-and-run case accused

State deputy chief minister and minister in-charge for Home, Y. Patton on Tuesday, felicitated the five Nagaland police escort personnel attached to him for their prompt action in intercepting a truck, which was involved in a hit and run case.
According to a DPRO Dimapur report, Patton lauded the police personnel for showing “extraordinary courage and presence of mind”.
He encouraged them to be ever ready in order to take initiatives beyond their call of duty.
The deputy CM acknowledged the five escort personnel with a cash award of Rs. 20,000 each as a token of appreciation.


The police department was also instructed to give “befitting recognition for their exemplary action.”
It may be mentioned that on July 2, a truck rammed into a Maruti Eeco taxi near ICAR under ADC Medziphema sub-division and fled the spot.
The accident resulted in the death of five persons while three others were grievously injured.
Upon reaching the site of accident, the escort party who were on their way to Kohima after dropping the deputy CM at the airport intercepted the truck after a hot chase.
Later, the truck driver was apprehended.
