IMPHAL, July 31: Agitators should come to the negotiating table, rather than carry out rampage on the streets said the State director general of police Sahid Ahmed, this evening.
Imposing bandhs and blockades will only cause inconveniences to the people, he added.
The DGP was addressing the media at his office chamber, this evening.
He also said extra police forces will be deployed in the hill districts.
The hill districts are going through a tense situation currently and to take control of the situation, the State Home department has taken up actions to deploy extra security forces there, he said.
He continued that the state force will tackle the situation whatever it takes.
The DGP further said that the situation in Manipur is tense in the wake of the ILP demand movement and the killing of Ukhrul ADC.
He said that policing will be intensified to contol the ongoing conflicts in the State by deploying extra personnel. He said that deployment may increase or decrease from time to time according to the demands of the situation.
When enquired about the communication gap between the public and the police, the DGP replied that Manipur Police will undertake community based programmes on experimental basis accordingly, as per the State policy and programme.
He also furnished that those security forces found acting beyond their briefs will be punished befittingly.
