DIMAPUR, SEPTEMBER 4: The Confederation of Chang Students’ Union (CCSU) has served a 24-hour ultimatum to Director General of Police, Nagaland, to transfer the Superintendent of Police, Tuensang, Amit Nigam.
On Saturday, the Union organised a protest at Clock Tower junction to demand the SP’s immediate transfer, and also submitted the ultimatum to the DGP through Tuensang district administration.
According to a CCSU official, the protest and demand for transfer on Saturday was a result of a series of incidents that gave rise to resentment among the public against the district’s top police officer.
However, the CCSU official said, the straw that broke the camel’s back was an incident that occurred on September 2, when the SP is alleged to have physically assaulted his driver over “a minor accident” caused by a brake failure.
He said that the SP had also made the driver pay for the damages.
He alleged that the SP had asked the driver his tribe, before continuing the assault.
In the ultimatum, the CCSU also cited the SP’s alleged “dreadful failure to provide the requisite security personnel, and discourteous withdrawal (of security) during the 7th ENSF General Conference on August 27.”
“His relationship with the tribal apex organisations of our district implies a grave dereliction of duty. His principles and executions of power had brought forth a disparity, contradicting our traditional ethics and morality”, it stated.
The Union warned that it would not be held responsible for any untoward situation that might happen if the DGP fails to respond immediately as demanded.
The DGP did not respond to calls made by Nagaland Page on Saturday evening.
A CCSU official, however, informed that the response from the Government has been “positive” till Saturday evening. “However, result shall be declared tomorrow”, he said.
