Imphal, Nov 7 (UNI) Manipur Director General of Police (DGP) Y Joykumar Singh today launched the Manipur Police website - www.manipurpolice.org The DGP said the new website gives details of the history of the Manipur Police, its organisational structure, bio-data of senior officers, district-wise police jurisdictions, branches, including the Armed Police (Manipur Rifles and Indian Reserve Battalions), Criminal Intelligence Department (CID), Traffic Police, Narcotics and Affairs of the Border, DG Control Room, Manipur Police Wireless, Manipur Police Training School (MPTS), Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), Central Motor Transport Workshop (CMTW) and Home Guard.

He said the new website would be very useful for the people and he would also consider the proposal of giving the details of the arrests and detentions in the website, adding that it would be updated regularly.

The DGP claimed that the law and order in the state was under control and the spate of killings were mostly related to internal clashes of the militant organisations.

State Social Welfare Minister N Loken was threatened by the Kangleipak Communist Party (KCP) recently and bombs were hurled at his residence at Leimapokpam in Bishenpur district.

However, the DGP said the minister was given adequate security, adding that it was not possible to provide security to all his relatives.

''The Manipur Police will be strengthened and five new police stations will come up soon,'' Mr Singh said.

On being asked about the frequent abductions of officials by militants, the DGP said the police had advised the officials to be alert.

''If they are abducted, police cannot just go after the militants and take action as it would endanger the life of the kidnapped officials,'' Mr Singh added.

He claimed that after three Public Health Engineering department officials were kidnapped by Kuki Revolutionary Army cadres, the police had almost reached the militants' hideout.

However, they could not take action against the militants considering the officials' safety, he said.
