Assam Police - Glorious Journey

Introduction

The glorious history of Assam Police is inextricably woven with the history of the Nation & North – East in general and that of present day Assam in particular. While Policing did exist in the days of Ahom kings, a modern Police came into existence with the coming of the British rulers. From humble origins, the force has grown from strength to strength tackling new challenges and crisis ranging from maintenance of law & order and prevention of crimes to tackling insurgency, violent ethnic movements and mass movements of unprecedented dimensions. Despite all odds Assam Police has come out with flying colours which has been paid for by the sacrifice of lives of more than one thousand Assam Police personnel. Probably, Assam Police is one of the few Police forces in the country which had to respond to such a wide variety of challenges and in the process has emerged as a Force whose history and present capabilities is as glorious and promising as that of North East region and Assam.

Historical Background :

Time Line of more than 150 glorious years ; 1826 to 2013: a) Post Treaty of Yandabu of 1826, Assam was annexed by the British who initiated the process for a regular & fully organised police force. The “Cachar Levy “of 1835 was raised to safeguard new settlements & Tea Estates and” Jorhat Militia” of 1838 was raised to protect border from transgressions. Eventually they were merged and renamed the Frontier Police. b) The Police Act of 1861 was implemented in 1862 and the CRPC was also brought into operation in the same year. Following this, 11 (Eleven) Districts were created which were further divided into a number of Police Stations headed by a “Darogah”. c) In 1887, Assam was carved out as a separate Chief Commissioner`s Province and Police was divided into four branches of which the two important ones were the Civil Police for maintenance of law & order and prevention of crimes and secondly, the Frontier Force for protection of the border. The total strength of the Civil Police in 1874 was 3,352. d) In 1878, the Police was reorganised into i) Civil Police & ii) Armed Police (earlier Frontier Force) with the latter assisting the former. Later on, in 1885 the Railway Police Force was created. e) By the end of the 19th century, the strength of the Police Force was increased to 4,175 and there was a quantitative growth in the numbers of Police Stations to 94. f) In 1912, when the province of Assam came into existence, the entire military Police was reorganised into Battalions and a Finger Print Bureau was set up and CID established in 1913. g) In the 60’s and 70’s, changes in the organisational structure were effected by creation of new branches like SB, BIEO,CID, Border branch, Radio Orgn., Fire Service, All Woman Police Station and Training Institutions like PTC, APTC, RTS, BTC were established. h) The past ten years have witnessed sustained support of modernization works under the Central Govt. PMF scheme. New Police Stations buildings, vehicles and state of art equipments have added teeth to the police capabilities. Specialised units have been created to tackle insurgency, law & order, security & crime. i) As of today Assam Police is a 65,000 thousand strong force.

ASSAM POLICE : A SAGA OF COURAGE, VALOUR & SUPREME SACRIFICE

The history of Assam Police has been a saga of indomitable courage, unflinched devotion to duty and supreme sacrifice by its officers and men. This force has always been in the forefront to defend the status of Assam as an integral part of India. The major milestones crossed are:

i) 1921: Political agitations throughout India & Assam:
In 1921 Assam Police had to tackle a wave of political agitations and disturbances owing to labour unrest, a prolonged strike in the Railways and Non-cooperation movement of Mahatma Gandhi

ii) 1939 : Political Unrest and War :
In 1939, a severe strain was brought on the Police owing to the Digboi Refinery strike, political unrest and war with Germany.

iii) 1939 : World War II :
With the progress of the war, the burden of additional duties increased enormously – control over the foreigners, vigilance over lines of communications, counter – espionage & anti – sabotage activities and maintenance of internal security.

iv) 1942 : Fall of Burma :
Assam Police faced an entirely novel set of circumstances during 1942. With the fall of Burma imminent, the flow of refugees gathered momentum and the task of requisitioning vehicles for the war effort & evacuation of refugees fell on the Police. And Assam Police did an excellent job.

v) 1942-43 : Japanese attack imminent :
During 1942 – 43, the danger of infiltration by enemy agents increased and the impending danger of invasion of India by Japan created new problems of internal security. The Naga Hills & Manipur became the main targets and Assam Police supplied Officers & men to augment the local Police and helped in establishing intelligence screens. When the threat of the Railways & other vital communications was at its height, the Police remained firm in their duties.
vi) 1947: Partition of India :
Several problems connected with the partition of the country kept the Police busy. Despite severe handicaps & shortcomings, Assam Police managed to tide over the difficult transitional period with out much of its reputation impaired.

vii) 1956- Disturbed Condition in Naga Hills :
The disturbed conditions in the Naga Hills posed a new problem to the Assam Police in 1956. It is a matter of pride that Assam police gave a good account of themselves and proved equal to the task.

viii) 1950-1960 : Insurgency in Lushai Hills(Mizoram) :
Assam Police units gave service in insurgencies in the 50’s and 60’s in Lushai Hills District rendering yeoman service and losing personnel including senior officers.

ix) 1960 : Linguistic Agitation :
In 1960, the AASU after its formation chalked out a series of agitational programmes for introduction of Assamese language as medium of instruction. Because of its emotional character it led to several law & order complications but due to the effective handling by Assam Police the situation was controlled commendably.

x) 1962 : Chinese Aggression :
During the Chinese aggression of 1962, when Tezpur almost fell into the hands of the Chinese and was ordered to be evacuated, the SP Sri N.N.Changkakoti, IPS, Late Sri J.K.Sinha, IPS ( P ) and other officers & men of Assam Police valiantly held on to their charge.

xi) 1979-1985 Anti-Foreigners agitation :
The year 1979 is a watershed in the annals of Assam Police history as it marks the begining of the historic Assam Agitation against foreigners and emergence of successive ethnic & separatist agitations resulting in unprecedented law & order problem, public disorder and security challenges.

In 1979, the AASU launched the Student`s agitation resulting in wide spread bandhs, hartals, janta curfew, blockade of the Highway & Railways, stoppage of transportation of crude oil, gherao and sporadic acts of violence which culminated in the massacre at Nellie in 1983.

This was an agitation that convulsed Assam and brought the functioning of Govt. and even courts to a standsill. It was only Assam Police that stood firm to maintain the writ of the State, often at great cost to individual officers whose families faced social boycott while their own lives were under threat and many were brutally killed.

xii) 1980’s-90’s Ethnic Agitation :

(a) In the mid 80`s & 90`s , Assam faced several violent ethnic agitations starting with the Bodo agitation by the ABSU. The agitation started as a people’s movement, later it took a violent turn claiming many lives of civilians, security forces and large scale destruction of public and private infrastructure. The movement was characterised by ethnic killings, ambushes on police and army and blasts of high intensity and frequency.

Assam Police has shown remarkable professional competence in containing and controlling the situation in the Boro areas. Not fearing ambushes and threat to live, valiant officers and men of Assam Police took the Boro extremists head on. Many extremists were apprehended or neutralised. Pro-democratic elements of Boro society were protected by Assam Police enabling a solution in the form of Territorial Council for the Boros.

(b) Other ethnic agitation in Assam were launched by the Ravas, Tiwas, Deori, Sonowal Kochari, Karbies, Mech, Garos and Deamsas which led to massive law and order problem and was deftly handled by Assam Police minimising loss to unity and integrity of the nation.
xiii) 1980’s-Separatist Movements :

In the 80`s two separatist militant outfits namely, the ULFA & the BDSF were formed with the avowed objective of secessionism by waging war against the Govt. of India. These two outfits had bases in Myanmar, Bangla Desh & Bhutan and with the blessing of the ISI who provided all sorts of logistical support for destabilising India by way of assisting in procurement of arms & explosives etc from the international arms cartels.

When the violence committed by the ULFA reached its peak in 1990, which almost paralyzed the law & order machinery in the State, then, on 27/28th Nov`1990 the entire State was declared as Disturbed Area and the AFSPA was invoked for restoring peace and building confidence in the minds of the people from all walks of life. The relentless CI Operation under the Unified Command of which Assam Police was an integral part was started with four pronged strategy of operation against the militants, surrender-cum-rehabilitation, peace overture and psy operation. The Operation All Clear by the Royal Bhutan Army in 2003 to flush out the militant outfits viz. ULFA & NDFB from their hideouts in Bhutan have yielded positive results. This is evident from the following chart:-
SUMMARY OF COUNTER-INSURGENCY OPERATIONS
FROM 1991 TO 2012 (TILL 5th SEPT.)
 
 

xiv) Multiple Militancies ::

Besides ULFA and NDFB, the State has witnessed simultaneously the scourge of militancy-related violence resorted to by several ethnic militant groups, whose sole aim and objective was to achieve self-rule/autonomy for their community within the State. The State Police has taken this emergence of ethnic militancy as a challenge and has successfully neutralized almost all the groups by bringing them into the mainstream by laying down of arms.

a) The first success story was the signing of MOU with the BLT (Bodo Liberation Tiger) on 10-02-2003, whereby BTC( Bodoland Territorial Council) came into existence and the BTAD( Bodoland Territorial Autonomous Districts) was formed by carving out four districts in the State.

b) In successive years :

i) The tripartite SOO agreement was signed with dreaded militant outfits viz., UPDS (United Peoples Democratic Solidarity) of Karbi Anglong on 01-08-02 .

ii) SOO agreement was signed with DHD (Dima Halam Douga) in the Dima Hasao District on 01.01.03. Already MOU was signed with UPDS on 25-11-2011 and finally the outfit surrendered with their arms/ ammunition.

iii) The DHD (J), renegade group of DHD (Nunisa) and KLNLF, which was a breakaway faction of UPDS, were also brought to the mainstream on 02-10-2009 &11-02-2010 respectively.

iv) In the meantime, BTF (Bengali Tiger Force) and ULFBV (United Liberation Front of Barak Valley) have surrendered.

v) MOU has been signed with DHD (J) and DHD (N) on 08.10.2012;

vi) Discussion with KLNLF is continuing.

c) Last but not the least, on Jan. 24,2012, nine ethnic militant groups including five Adivashi groups viz APA ( Adivashi Peoples Army ), AANLA ( All Adivashi National Liberation Army), STF (Santhal Tiger Army ), BCF ( Bircha Commando Force), ACMA (Adivashi Cobra Military Army ), KLO/KLA ( Kuki Liberation Organization/ Kuki Liberation Army ), HPC (D) ( Hmar Peoples Conference ( Democratic), UKDA ( United Kukigam Defence Army ), KRA ( Kuki Revolutionary Army ) have joined the mainstream. This is indeed a new feather in the cap of Assam Police.

d) In spite of all these positive developments there are still some areas in the State which are in the clutches of militancy. The Paresh Barua-led ULFA ( AT) group, which has its General Mobile HQR in Taka of Myanmar with the blessing of NSCN (K) is still a force to reckon with. Paresh Barua through his contacts with the foreign intelligence agencies has gathered huge no. of sophisticated arms and IEDs etc. through the logistical support of the like-minded Myanmar-based NE military outfits like UNLF, PLA etc. Lohit and Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh and Mon district of Nagaland are providing safe passage to the ULFA (AT) militants for movement as well as transhipment of arms/ explosives into the State.

Assam Police is still continuing its relentless efforts in coordination with SF/CAPF and has succeeded in neutralizing the efforts of these groups, through the latter is trying hell bent to demonstrate their existence, which is evident from the below noted chart.


(xv) 1999 : Nefarious Designs of ISI & HuM :
In August 1999, the State Police successfully busted the ISI-sponsored Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM) module in the State with the initial arrest of 4 Hum operatives (one Pak National, 2 are from U.P. and one from J&K). The State Police successfully cracked the network of Hum in the State by arresting 47 nos. of Hum cadres. As a result of this operation 49 nos. of Hum and Huji cadres surrendered before the State Police, some of whom had got trained in POK and Bangladesh.

xvi) State Police Vs Maoists:
The silent intrusion of CPI (Maoist) into the State in the early part of the last decade has posed a new challenge before the State Police. Though the outfit is in nascent stage, the State Police has pursued an offensive Policy against these entrants in the law and order scenario as a result of which the outfit could not extend its area of influence. The relentless police action is manifested in the apprehension of the 40 nos. CPI (Maoist) activists including the Chief Organizer of the State and also in the death of 5 cadres in encounter with Police / SF.

xvii) Security Challenges :
Extremists targeted the backbone of this Geo- Strategically important State with the help of neighbouring countries. They were into blasting bridges, railway lines, Oil installations and wireless communication systems. They also started to target political leaders to destabilise the democratic process in the state. Assam Police personnel provided effective security coverage to the same and thwarted the designs of Anti-National forces.

xviii) Conduct of Elections :
All through these decades of turmoil, Assam Police made successful arrangements for conduct of Elections. Despite prevalence of ethnic agitation, extremists activities, communal tension, boycott calls by the ultras and a host of other complications, Assam Police has done a commendable job in conducting free & fair elections throughout the State since independence.

xix) Infiltration :
Assam Police Border Organization has been engaged in the task of detection and deportation of illegal migrants from across the Indo-Bangladesh Border. Since 1974 this important and sensitive task which has special ramifications for Assam is being performed by this organization.

A total of 10,49,349 nos of cases have been initiated under IM(D)T and Foreigners Act and 2,24,447 nos of cases had been referred to the IM(D)T and Foreigners Tribunals for decision. Out of a total of 1,05,022 nos of disposed IM(D)T & FT cases 57,158 nos of persons have been declared as illegal foreigners . So far 2,455 nos of declared foreigners have been deported/pushed back and 116 are awaiting deportation in the Detention Centers. Further, 27,210 nos of fresh infiltrators and/ re-infiltrators have been apprehended and pushed back across the International Border from 1985 to 31st March,2013

xx) Specialised units :
Commando Bn, Special Operations Unit of Special Branch, special technical units of SB for watch duties, cipher cell of APRO, Special Task Force for special operations were created to do specific jobs in a highly professional manner, and these units always rose to the expectations in delivering results expected of them.

xxi) Village Defence Organisation :
Created by an Act of the Assembly the VDO is an unique institution and first of its kind in the country. The VDO with village Defence parties in almost all the 26,000 revenue villages has been an auxiliary force and provided Assam Police with support of every kind, whether during floods, natural or man made disasters, accidents, role in criminal intelligence, law and order including internal security, and keeping peace in the village. In the discharge of duties, VDPs have apprehended hard core criminals, extremists with least regard to their lives. A significant number of VDP volunteers lost their life & limb in doing this service- which is a voluntary service without pay. This is Community Policing at its best and has stood the stresses of turbulent decades in the State.

xxii) Police – Public Relations :
Assam Police has taken up the following schemes to reach out to general population and to present humane face of policing.

i) Aashwas- This is an initiative of coordinating sustenance and education of children who were orphaned due to violence. All together 1014 children benefited by this scheme.

ii) Sahyog - Assam Police battalion in close cooperation with residents of nearby villages played the role of catalyst with a view to improving their economic, educational and cultural development.

iii) Prahari - An initiative for participatory development and people friendly policing to fight social maladies like witch hunting and deprivation.

i) This is a clear indication of the marked improvement of law & order & security scenario over the years as the number of civilians killed has reached an all time low figure of 29 in 2011 which can be attributed to the surrender of a large number of cadres and joining of various militant groups in the peace process alongwith relentless CI operation.

ii) The most notable achievement is the signing of SOO agreement
with the NDFB on 01-06-2005 and with the Arabinda Rajkhowa led ULFA on 12-07-2011. The tripartite peace talks with both the groups are going on in the right direction.

iii) A silver lining has also appeared in the law & order scenario when the Ranjan Daimary led NDFB (R) declared indefinite cessation of hostility w.e.f. 01-08-2011 and recently walked out of jail on bail and showed interest in negotiations.

Conclusion:

In its glorious history of over a century Assam Police rendered outstanding service to the nation in preserving the territorial and political integrity at great cost to its own personnel. The complex ethnic and communal mix in Assam, at times hostile elements in neighbouring countries, dealing with multiple militancies are just some of the tough challenges faced by Assam Police. In the field of criminal investigation, the gamut of offences ranging from witchcraft to cyber crimes, kidnapping & extortion to multi- level marketing scams, Assam Police Jawans & Officers have maintained peace & order often at great sacrifice and hardship and successfully upheld the pride & integrity of India. For this unprecedented record of service to the nation, the President’s Colours will be just recognition for the sacrifices and achievements of this splendid force.
