Deputy Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh Kameng Dolo who is also the State Home Minister has ordered the transfer of Tirap SP Jasmeet Singh for his alleged manhandling with an executive member of Tirap district BJP Lankham Wangsu on Monday. Informing this to a team of State BJP led by its Vice President Techi Necha, who called on him here on Tuesday, Dolo regretted that it was unbecoming and unwarranted act on the part of law keeper. Dolo also informed the BJP delegation that State government is very concerned about the people’s security and safety, which would not be allowed to compromise at any cost.
‘It is the duty of the police to protect and serve all the people as well as to ensure the equal application of the rule of law and the respect for the human rights of all citizens,’ Dolo stated. Appreciating the Deputy Chief Minister for his prompt action on the matter, BJP National Council Member Tame Phassang added that taking the law into one’s own hand by the public servant is a matter of grave concern. ‘Lankham Wangsu had received grievous injuries on his head and other vital parts of the body,’ Dolo said.
Earlier, the BJP in its complaint letter demanded immediate suspension of the SP and necessary administrative action against him. The party informed the Deputy Chief Minister that Lainkham Wangsu, who also is an executive member of party’s Tirap district unit, was manhandled by the SP without any provocation even after the formal appointment was given to him.
According to the information, victim had visited the SP office at around 10.30 am on May 16 and wanted to meet him in connection with a relative’s official matter while maintaining required office decorum and sanctity. The SP allegedly physically assaulted Wangsu when he approached him just to take leave after being refused his appointment after a long wait of about 3 hours. Meanwhile, Tirap SP Jasmeet Singh has refuted the serious allegations leveled against him.
