State police demands retention  of Rupin Sharma as DGP

To hold solidarity meet at PHQ on Jun 18

Dimapur, June 15: In the wake of reports of the likely transfer of incumbent Director General of Police, Rupin Sharma, IPS, an emergency meeting of PHQ staff Friday afternoon unanimously agreed to seek his retention.

All staffs under PHQ, except senior officers, have been asked to compulsorily attend the solidarity meet with each holding a copy of the petition to be submitted.
The meeting observed that Rupin Sharma, IPS, being posted as DGP Nagaland was a long awaited desire of the Department. “An officer of his caliber was the need of the hour. Under his short period as DG, the Dept has seen landmark changes initiated and the working system improved in many ways. This has benefited not only the dept but Nagas as a whole. An upright and honest officer like him was needed to lead the Dept,” said the minutes of the meeting.
The meeting decided to request all units/offices of Nagaland Police to organize similar solidarity meets within each unit headquarters. The event thus organized to be coordinated for simultaneous conduct on June 18 at 10 am as scheduled in PHQ for a synchronized occasion so as to create mass impact, it said.
