Peace returns to Meghalaya, Marbaniang
Shillong, Aug 24 (UNI) Meghalaya's Director General of Police William Richmond Marbaniang today said the law and order situation of the state was perfectly alright.
Delivering a key note address at the annual ''Superintendents of Police and Commandants Conference- 2006'' held here today, Mr Marbaniang said the participation of the public in all major festivals, the uninterrupted academic sessions, the large presence of local and foreign tourists, the brisk pace of commercial activities were all speak of the prevailing peace in the state.
''The professional consistency of the state police has richly contributed to the maintenance of peace in the state,'' he asserted.
However, the police chief said, the experience of various police forces in maintaining peace was not a simple task.
Informing that a new CID cell has been initiated to monitor the trial of important criminal cases, Mr Marbaniang said the state CID has taken up a number of important inquiries and cases and were in the process of streamlining the department.
Terming, Meghalaya police as the best police force in the country, state Home Minister, Robert Garnet Lyngdoh, lauded the state police for putting all efforts in achieving a peaceful atmosphere in the state inspite of all constraints.
However, the Home Minister urged the men-in-uniform not to be complacent with the small militant outfits before they create future problems in the state.
Mr Lyngdoh also assured the police officials to implement the GP Wahlang recommendations on police reforms in the state in toto.
