AMSU seeks disclosure of enquiry report on CM’s police medal

The All Manipur Students' Union cautioned that if the report is not kept in public domain within one week, it will take up legitimate action in the public interest.

The All Manipur Students' Union (AMSU) has sought for public disclosure of the enquiry report regarding the recommendation of ‘chief minister's police medal for meritorious award’ to a sub-inspector who has a criminal case in the past. 

Concerning the issue, AMSU has submitted a memorandum to the director general of police of Manipur on Saturday.

The memorandum has questioned how the suspended police personnel, who had a criminal record in the past, was resumed into the service and eventually made him get the CM's police medal. 

It further questioned accountability and transparency in the selection process and demanded to put the dossier or citation of the police personnel, who was awarded with CM’s police medal for meritorious award, in the public domain. 

“Is there any false connection or doubtful activity in the selection process with the drastic action of the senior police officer who chaired the committee to recommend the CM's police medal?” questioned AMSU in the memorandum.

The memorandum has further mentioned that it has been almost three weeks that the DGP must have received the enquiry report.

“AMSU hopes that the mentioned issues are duly covered in the enquiry report and moreover, the general public is eagerly waiting to see the findings of the enquiry,” it stated.

Urging to release the enquiry report immediately, the memorandum further cautioned that if the report is not kept in public domain within one week, AMSU will take up legitimate action in the public interest.
