Tripura CM stresses better lawyer-police coordination for giving justice to victims

Agartala, Oct 8 (UNI) Expressing concern over the increasing number of drug and narcotic-related cases in the state, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha on Sunday stressed the need for better coordination between government advocates and police to further strengthen the justice delivery system.

Interacting with the government prosecutors, Saha said better coordination between police and lawyers since the beginning of the investigation could ensure justice for the victims, but in many cases, it has not happened.

As a result, criminals went scot free and remained involved in crimes like trafficking and smuggling of drugs, which have become a major threat to Tripura nowadays, Saha observed.

The Chief Minister, however, listened to the issues and challenges faced by the government advocates in the court while dealing with the administration and assured that infrastructure and professional issues of the lawyers and Bar members would be addressed by the state government.

“It is up to the lawyers to properly administer the constitution of India to the common people. People have high expectations from you. Whether it’s a narcotics case or other small and big cases, the prosecutors must collaborate with the investigating officers of the police to ensure justice for the victim,” Dr Saha stated.

He called upon the lawyers to expedite the resolution of pending important cases in various courts.
