Aligarh, Oct 8 (ANI): The Director General of Police of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), K Vijay Kumar, has said that the CRPF is working in complete coordination with the Manipur Police and putting all its efforts to clear the convoy of trucks carrying essential commodities to prevent any shortage like situation.
Addressing media persons during the 19th anniversary of Rapid Action Force, Kumar said: "The CRPF is working in complete coordination with the state police of Manipur and putting all efforts to bring the convoys of trucks carrying essential commodities like food and fuel safely to the state to prevent any shortage like situation."
He further said that last year also during the July - August, CRPF helped to clear the convoys of trucks in the state to a good extent.
"CRPF is in aide to the state police of Manipur and there is no independent deployment of its forces in the state," he added.
Emphasising that the security situation is very tricky in Manipur including the Sadar Hills, Kumar said: "As far as CRPF is concerned, it is present in good numbers and if there is any necessity of increasing the numbers, it will be done by Ministry of Home Affairs."
"We have acquired non lethal and sub lethal weapons that will create less fatality and which will create injury but will not be of grievous nature. We have acquired many things in last one year for modernizing our forces and we are working on other areas too," he added.
Minister of State for Home M. Ramachandran, who was present at the occasion said: "RAF is a very disciplined force, known for its meticulous action and the prompt way they act." By Devesh Gupta (ANI)
