SILCHAR, Aug 5 - With an aim to curb the criminal activities in the area, Rajveer Singh (2010 batch IPS officer) took charge as the new Superintendent of Police (SP) of Cachar district on Tuesday. He took charge from the outgoing SP Diganta Barah, who has been transferred to Dhubri. After assuming office, the new SP made his intention clear that there would be no compromise on illegal activities in the district and he would act as a �watchdog� to curb such activities.
�Law is powerful in India. But the complacent attitude from a section of the people has overshadowed it. There will be no compromise on any illegal action and zero tolerance on any attempt to spread communal tension,� he said. The new police chief in the district sought cooperation from the people in making the society crime-free.
Speaking about easing the irritating traffic, he said that officers had been deputed at specific points to manage traffic flow during the peak hours. A green corridor could be formed to make way for patients in critical conditions, he added.
He also said that he would speak to the Deputy Commissioner on the encroachment of footpaths in the town. However, admitting that the department has significant shortage of police personnel, he said that the available force must be used to optimum advantage.
Asked about the measures to put a check on the terrorist activities, he said that terrorists had been using Cachar as a corridor and their activities emanate from local support on which the police would keep a close eye.
It is to be mentioned that during his tenure as the Additional Police Superintendent here, one NSCN member was arrested. He also played a key role in maintaining peace during communal clashes at Udharbondh ahead of last Durga Puja.
