Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Thursday said that steps were being taken to improve the relation between the Indian Army, local administration and the state police.
Khandu's comments came in the backdrop of an incident last week when a few soldiers had allegedly vandalised the Bomdila police station and assaulted police personnel and civilians.
"A monthly sitting will be held between the Army and the state police for maintaining harmonious relation and to resolve issues, he said while attending the 46th Raising Day of Arunachal Pradesh Police here at Indira Gandhi Park along with Home Minister Kumar Waii, Speaker TN Thongdok and other officials.
The chief minister directed the state police head to ensure that all necessary steps are taken so that relations with the armed forces can be maintained. PTI
