BIPLAB DEB: POLICE MUST CURB ANTI-SOCIALS AND EXTEND RELATIONSHIP WITH PEOPLE!

Tripura police performed a wonderful job by curbing state's two-decade old insurgency in this state that had resulted in the loss of countless lives. This achievement has been appreciated across the country but the task of police does not end here. What the state's police force is expected to deliver is a society free of crimes and to achieve this there must be no compromise with anti-social elements striking at the root of rule of law. Making this crucial observation in the course of his speech in the  'Workshop cum Seminar' organized by the state's police accountability commission today in the Hall No-1 of government run Prajna Bhawan auditorium , the chief minister also said that police must try to have increasing interface with society and specially the elected public representatives to come to grips with reality. 'The current fashion is to release information to the print or electronic media, I have no objection to this but taking common people, specially their elected representatives into confidence; as the first step towards this 'beat' constables can be appointed with specific responsibilities' said Biplab Kumar Deb. He said that he wants not only the police to have accountability but also the entire administration down to the Panchayat level
 
The chairman of the police accountability commission Justice (retired) Swapan Chandra Das read out a written speech in which he shed light on the functioning and performance of the commission and also called for more harmonious and co-operative relation with society  and lay members of the public. Sri Pranay Sahay, a senior member of the police accountability commission and former DGP, said that if the police personnel respond promptly to register complaints and redress grievances of people, society at large feel happy. He laid stress on prompt registration of FIRs and complaints, giving a copy of the same to the complainant and initiating prompt action as a means of better interface between police and public.


Today's Workshop and Seminar was also attended by DGP Akhil Kumar Shukla, chairperson of the state womens commission Barnali Goswamy and police officers of various ranks from all over the state. Former Vice Chancellor of Tripura Central University Professor Arunoday Saha and advocate general Arun Kanti Bhowmik  also attended the successful and well-attended programme today.
