PASIGHAT, Nov 20: A coordination meeting to defuse inter-state Assam and Arunachal Pradesh boundary tension here on Friday unanimously condemned murder of driver Dhurba Pathak on being shot dead at Tuting in Upper Siang district recently and lauded prompt action of district administration to bring the accused to book.
The meeting, at the direction of Arunachal home commissioner, was attended by East Siang DC Dr. Kinny Singh & SP Rajiv Ranjan Singh, Dhemaji DC Narsing Pawar and SP Dr. Dhananjay Ghanwat besides DCs and SPs of Lower Siang, Shi Yomi, Upper Siang, West Siang, Upper Subansiri and Leparada districts.

After threadbare discussion on various important issues relating to traffic movement, safety & security of life, sensitization of citizens, NGOs and CBOs of both the states, it was decided to hold inter-state coordination meetings on a regular basis to prevent any dispute by finding amicable solution so that unwanted elements fail to mislead the people.
To continue the spirit of bonhomie, the top officials agreed to introduce safe stoppage points for drivers and helpers, appointment of nodal officers and to introduce helpline numbers for prompt and protective services. (DIPRO)
