HISTORY

The border State of Manipur is situated very near to the so-called Golden triangle (Myanmar, Laos & Thailand). It also shares a highly porous international boundary of approximately 365.5 km (Source Manipur Remote Sensing Application) with Myanmar all along the dense hilly region facilitating almost free movement of underground elements and drug traffickers and all sorts of unlawful activities with the least resistance.

Thus, having felt the urgency for appropriate action to curb the growing inflow of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances, a narcotic Special Cell was opened in the Police Department in January, 1985.

Further, the temporary post of the Special Officer (intelligence) was re-designated as Superintendent of Police (Border affairs) Manipur in the year 1985.

 

The office of the superintendent of police, Border Affairs started functioning as a Police Station with the territorial jurisdiction extending over the whole of Manipur  for the purpose of dealing with offences punishable under Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.

Further, the Government of Manipur in 1992 accorded  approval for utilizing the services of the Superintendent of Police, Border Affairs for the following works till such time the post of Superintendent of Police (Border Affairs) is re-designated as Superintendent (Narcotics and Affairs of Border) with the approval of the Govt. of India.

i)         Narcotics Drugs Matter

ii)        Arms smuggling activities and

iii)       Infiltration of foreigners

Since then the Superintendent of Police, Narcotics and Affairs of Border continued to function practically as the Nodal Officer in respect of Police Department, Manipur to co-ordinate with the Narcotic Control Bureau, New Delhi and its regional unit at Imphal.
