When approached about the purposes behind the huge number of cases pending for transfer, police authorities guaranteed that the essential driver for this is the absence of satisfactory labor.
Highlighting different reasons for this, Mousumi Kalita, previously responsible for the all ladies’ police headquarters in Guwahati told G Plus, “Now and then, since the exploited people are youngsters, we can’t compel them for their announcements since they are regularly frightened and damaged. In a lot of cases, we have seen that the guardians of the exploited people as well, don’t need them to approach and don’t coordinate during an examination. These are the reasons because of which the case gets postponed.”
