Villagers of Khatan and Tilongkiong thanked security forces for arresting most wanted criminal of the area and urge govt. to set up circle office and police outpost to ensure peace in the locality.
The resident of Tilongkiong and Khatan villages as well as Tumba and its peripheral pocket of Medo and over and above the tea glower of Chowkham and business communities extends heartfelt gratitude to Lohit Police of Wakro circle and Madras Regiment Chowkham for their valiant effort to carve a niche in nabbing self style Major Kalinjoy Chakma and his associates of UG group Eastern Naga National Govt. (ENNG) who was most wanted in several cases registered under Wakro Police Station in Lohit district.
He was allegedly involved in Extortion, Arson, Arms Act and Robbery. The villagers borne the brunt of UG group since 2017 and have been suffered massive atrocities related to killing of Mithun, land encroachment, malicious act of burning houses, demand of ransom etc.
However, Lohit Police under the active supervision of DW Thungon SP Lohit and Army launched massive combing operation to thwart out active Under Ground (UG) group at Khatan (situated adjoining Changlang border), TilongKiong and peripheral areas which resulted arrest of a wanted man and his associates in early this month.
“We salute their velour act but problem does not end here. The government should set up police out post, deploy more security personnel and create circle office at Khatan to ensure peace and harmony in the areas”, urges the villagers.
