Insurgency still persists in border areas: Tripura CM

Agartala, Jan 4 (ANI): Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has said that although militant activities have been curbed in the state, the problem is yet to be completely uprooted completely.

Inaugurating the Tripura Police Week here on Monday, Manik Sarkar said: "The insurgency problem has not yet been totally uprooted. Though their activities have come down in many states, but still they are very active in many states and across the border they still have their camps; maybe their strength has reduced."

He also congratulated the efforts of police officials in effectively combating the insurgency problem in the state, adding that a lot of effort needed to be made to completely wash away the problem.

The state police department has also introduced an SMS-based information sharing method with the help of the National Informatics Centre (NIC) to curb militant activities in the State.

Addressing the session, K. Saleem Ali, Director General of Police said that police should act like friends to ensure there is no fear in the mind of people about cops who can be approached for problems.

"We did change at the police stations at the district level and the sub-division level. We have done some restructuring and reformation of the police stations to make police friendly and people friendly," she added.

Tripura is the second state in India after Jharkhand to introduce the Geo-Spatial 3D Satellite Imagery System to curb militancy and crime. (ANI)
