Chang students protest demanding transfer of Tuensang SP
Tuensang/ Kohima, Sep. 4 (EMN): The Confederation of Chang Students’ Union (CCSU) on Saturday organised a protest at Clock Tower in Tuensang, demanding immediate transfer of Amit Nigam, Superintendent of Police (SP), Tuensang, for allegedly assaulting a uniformed personnel.
In an ultimatum addressed to the Director General of Police and submitted through the Deputy Commissioner’s office, the union sought transfer the SP within 24 hours.
Speaking to Eastern Mirror, CCSU president C Pongsu said that the ultimatum would expire on Sunday at 10:30 am.
“This incident is inhumane. Assaulting a jawan in uniform is unacceptable and disrespectful. This act will be considered as carried out with bad intentions, and by this we can say that he is not a responsible officer,” he said.
In its letter, the student body alleged that the SP “had physically assaulted one of his constables using tribal identity and later let the victim repair the accidental damages”.
“His relationship with the tribal apex organisations of our district implies a grave dereliction of his duty,” read the letter, and mentioned his ‘failure to provide requisite security personnel and uncourteous withdrawal during the 7th General Conference of Eastern Naga Students’ Union on August 27 held in Tuensang.’
The union went on to state that it take action if its demand isn’t met during the stipulated time and that it would not be held responsible if any untoward incident.
Meanwhile, sources informed the victim (constable) had been discharged from the hospital but still under medication.
