DIGBOI, June 18 - In a rather disturbing development, that brought shame to the Assam Police here today at Bordumsa in Tinsukia district, five police personnel including 2nd Battalion cadres and a commando were caught red handed by people while negotiating with a drug peddler held earlier in the afternoon by the local youths.

According to sources, the police personnel attached to Bordumsa Police Station viz., Mridul Ahmed, Rajib Bora, Robert Narzery (commando), Kiran Sonar and Lila Gohain were being interrogated by senior officials after the local people protested their act. The people while demonstrating in front of the police station demanded the immediate arrest of the involved police personnel.

Talking to ANN Service, Asif Ahmed, the Additional Superintendent of Police, Tinsukia said that the wrong doers would not be spared, whosoever he or she may be. �If found guilty, the law would take its natural course against the police personnel also,� he said. The SDPO Margherita, OCs from the nearby Pengaree and Digboi police stations have also been pressed for the emergency service, if required to contain the law-and-order situation at Bordumsa.

Talking to the media, an activist of the Moran student body alleged that a drug peddler of Pengaree Mugongpather was held earlier along with the possession of the suspected contraband and subsequently handed over to these police personnel. However, the personnel in civil dress took the peddler to a nearby reserve forest and started demanding money and finally negotiated a deal for Rs 30, 000 against his safe release.

Meanwhile, the local people conducted a series of raids and held several other peddlers in no time from the market place located within around 200 meter radius of the border check gate and handed them over to the police. Several hundred bottles of illegally stored foreign liquor were also recovered during the search from the market. The people were still shouting anti-police slogans in front of the police station till the filing of this report.
