Citizens report police dept. to Vigilance Commission
Dimapur, July 8 (EMN): Two paralegal volunteers from Kohima have lodged a complaint with the Nagaland Vigilance Commission against the state’s police department.
A letter to the director and DIGP of the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption unit, Odi Jamir, and ST Yapang, stated that the complainants had filed an FIR at the PHQ ‘against the Planning & Machinery department on 23/01/18 for the (alleged) misuse of LADP (local area development programme) funds which was unearthed through RTI application.’
The report, it stated, was transferred to the superintendent of police in Mokokchung by the superintendent of police (crime), Kohima, on January 24. “That, as we were visiting Mokokchung district, we went to the office of the SP Mokokchung to enquire the status of the FIR on 27/06/18, but he told us that he did not receive the said FIR. Therefore we wrote another FIR on 28/06/18 for the same reason.
“That sir, at this needy hour, this kind of negligence by a Police department is very unfortunate, therefore we request you to have a look into this matter and take appropriate actions against them,” the letter read.
