Agartala: Even as Tripura’s political circle has been rocked by the theft of 165 files from the high security Tripura Police headquarters here, the police are yet to get any clue about the motive behind the incident that happened on the intervening night of Monday-Tuesday.

The police have arrested five persons in connection with the incident. The stolen files mostly belong to the Crime Branch of the police. The Tripura Police headquarters is guarded by the elite Tripura State Rifles.

A senior police officer said the files meant for weeding, destruction of various illegal cultivation and installations and also some dormant files kept in an isolated cabin of police headquarters were stolen and damaged by miscreants on the intervening night of Monday-Tuesday.

“An FIR was lodged on Tuesday in West Agartala police station. Police immediately launched a probe and almost all the stolen files were recovered. Five persons involved in this crime have been arrested so far,” officer-in-charge of the Agartala police station Subrata Chakraborty told IANS.

However, another senior police officer of the headquarters said that they are yet to know the exact reasons behind the “mysterious crime”.

“However, our probe is on to know the reason and intention of the theft. The security of the PHQ is being reviewed to prevent any recurrence in future and necessary action is being taken for security lapse,” the official told IANS, refusing to be named.

Meanwhile, opposition Congress leader Sudip Roy Barman has demanded a judicial probe by a sitting High Court judge into the “unprecedented stealing”.

Also, opposition leader and former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar in a letter to Chief Minister Manik Saha has demanded a high-level inquiry into the case.
