Gallantry Medal awardee sub inspector suspended: Manipur

A police sub inspector in Manipur who was awarded the Chief Minister’s Medal for Gallantry on Independence Day was suspended on Monday after a student body revealed that the police sub-inspector was involved in a drug trafficking case. The police sub-inspector in question is one B Debson Singh who was allegedly arrested with drugs in 2013. He was conferred with the Chief Minister’s Police Medal for Gallantry on this year’s Independence Day. The state Home department also immediately withdrew the award to the sub-inspector.  

All Manipur Student Union (AMSU) had pointed out on Sunday regarding the inclusion of the name of the sub-inspector involved in the drug trafficking case among the awardees of Chief Minister’s Police Medal for Gallantry for 2020. 

AMSU had pointed out that the sub-inspector was among 11-member team of the police commandos arrested from Pallel along the NH-102 when the vehicle they were travelling in to Moreh was found carrying Respifed Tablets and pseudoephedrine tablets worth Rs. 3,64,02,000 in international market in 2013.

The state Police department has also constituted a committee headed by IGP (intelligence) K Radhashyam as chairman to enquire into the lapses with the proposal for award of the chief minister’s medal for gallantry.
