W/Siang DA to intensify checking

AALO, Oct 28: Elaborate arrangements have been chalked out to contain growing nuisances like entry of people without inner line permits (ILP), drug peddling and violation of the Motor Vehicles Act in West Siang district.
During a meeting chaired by DC (in-charge) C Chukhu here on Monday, it was decided that check gates will be set up at Bam, the Sipu bridge, and Patum to check the flow of men and materials. The magistrate and the police will also ‘monitor’ rent houses, hotels and work sites, and persons who engage labourers without ILPs will be held accountable to the law.
Night patrolling will also be carried out, it was decided.
The police station OC informed that “five cases of NDPS have been registered at Aalo and intensified checking will go on in different locations.”
The police had earlier arrested seven persons in connection with gambling in defiance of the prohibitory order. (DIPRO)
