SPOs detained to defy demo

Around two hundred special police officers have been
detained in Guwahati on Thursday to prevent them from staging protest in front
of the DGP office in protest against the dismissal of their services.

The SPOs under the banner of the Special Police Officers'
Welfare Society (SPOWS) gathered at Guwahati railway station to march towards
the DGP's office at Ulubari. But, they were detained by police soon after
reaching the Guwahati railway station area and were taken to the Sonaram
playground. The SPOs were not allowed to proceed towards the DGP's office. But
they have threatened to resume its protest on Thursday to highlight their
plight.

About 278 SPOs were relieved from their duties in the Dima
Hasao district in 2010 forcing them to stage protest demanding their
re-engagement.
