Reacting on the matter, Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance Chairman Pradyot Deb Barma said the police bill had been placed for discussion and passage to ensure that a certain amount of law order situation comes under the control of the district council administration.

As per sources, a bill was passed in 1994 by the TTAADC to raise a separate unarmed police force. It became an act after the then governor Siddheswar Prasad gave his assent to the Bill three years later.
