In a meeting held with the DC Pravin Bakshi here on Tuesday, the former cadres also sought that the fund should be credited into their SBI accounts.
�We have been informed that our one time financial package is in civil deposit for more than two months and not yet released even though all process and formalities have been cleared from Police headquarters in Shillong,� said Malja.
He expressed frustration being felt by the former cadres over the delay in the release of the package for almost about two years now.
