DIMAPUR — To sensitise police officers and equip them with a comprehensive understanding of the new criminal laws namely Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita (BSN), Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita (BNSS) and the Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyan (BSA), a five-day training for officers from the rank of assistant sub-inspector to additional superintendent of police (ASP) got underway at Rhododendron Hall of Police Complex in Chümoukedima on March 1.
