KSIG, SANPO unhappy with demarcation of police station jurisdiction

IMPHAL, September 26: The Kuki Inpi of Saikul Gangmei (KSIG) and Saikul Area Naga People Organization (SANPO) submitted a memorandum to state Dy Chief Minister Gaikhangam yesterday regarding police district boundaries and police station jurisdiction in respect of Saikul sub division, Senapati District.

President, KSIG, Thangkam Lupheng stated during a press conference at Manipur Press Conference today.

Speaking to media persons, Thangkam Lupheng said that the KSIG and SANPO appreciated the state government policy of opening police stations for security and maintenance of law and order; however, it is discontented with the creation of police district boundaries and the subsequent demarcation of police station jurisdiction according to it, which is a policy of the State Government based on the hidden agenda to dismantle and distort the original district and sub division boundaries.

He further said that it is a covert policy to intrude and encroach upon hill areas in the name of security, law and order, which is acceptable to the people of Saikul sub division under any circumstances.

A Home department notification dated June 14, 2011 said as many as 35 villages of Saikul sub-division have been included under Sagolmang PS, 20 villages under Andro PS and another 34 villages of both Saikhul and Ukhrul under Yaingampokpi PS and Maphou dam police station is placed under the jurisdiction of Imphal East district PS, he said.

He further raised questions whether the government exists for security only of the valley districts or for the welfare and security of the whole state and added if in case it is the latter case than programs and policies should be implemented both in hill and valley equally.

The inclusion of police stations located in Saikul sub- division, Senapati district (Maphou dam police station) under the jurisdiction of Imphal East district police is against all norms, he said.

He continued that demands for immediate cancellation of Home Department’s notification was made immediately and to withdraw all the villages of sub-division included in the police stations of Imphal east district and to include the villages in the Maphou dam police station and purum likli police station (under construction) under the administrative jurisdiction of Senapati district police.

If the government fail to take up appropriate action on the demands within September 30, 2013, the organisations may be compelled to resort to various forms of agitations till the demands are fulfilled, he said.
