New Delhi, 21 June (MTNews): Advisor to the Chief Minister of Nagaland, Abu Metha, paid a visit to the Special Police Unit for the North Eastern Region (SPUNER) under the Delhi Police yesterday.

During the visit, Metha expressed his appreciation for the crucial role and valuable contributions of the SPUNER team in the National Capital Region (NCR).

Metha acknowledged that since the establishment of SPUNER, people from the North East residing in the NCR have received valuable assistance in various situations, particularly during emergencies.

Metha emphasized that every citizen from the North East should feel a sense of belonging in the national capital, as Delhi belongs to every individual in the country. He highlighted the significance of fostering a comfortable and secure environment, enabling people to contribute more significantly to the nation-building process.


Metha also acknowledged the remarkable contributions of the region’s people in India’s rise in the international arena. Notably, the North East has emerged as a talent bank in sports, and he expressed confidence in the region’s capacity and caliber to enhance contributions in all sectors.


Assuring full cooperation, Metha pledged to support and improve SPUNER’s effectiveness. He emphasized the need for collective efforts to address the challenges faced by SPUNER and ensure its continued success.
