Manpower crisis, lack of vehicles, poor infrustructure hit Chaparmukh

In view of growing criminal activities, the Chapormukh Police Outpost was set up to curb the same many years ago.Unfortunately, manpower crisis,lack of vehicles, poor infrustucture are the three major problems being faced by the Outpost since its establishment. This police outpost which alone rendering services to 16 villages and more than 40 kms. area without having even the minimum facilities in their hand.


The police outpost is functioning from a small abandoned house consisting of three small rooms with cracked walls,broken roof. Of the three rooms one is for the In-Charge (IC),one for office use and the other for quarter- cum- kitchen.


Besides the IC , the police outpost has only 3 constables,1 nayak,and 1 Home Guard personnel though it requires at least 10 constables to look after the security of the vast area. Moreover,there is no any female Home Guard personnel or constable for which the outpost faces a lot of problems in visiting the cases related to women.


The Chapormukh Police Outpost is also facing the problems of vehicles. Many a times cases related to police are visited by vehicles hired by the policemen of this outpost.It is learnt that the amount paid to the hired vehicles is always arranged by the policemen themselves.


There is no toilet,latrine and water supply facility at the outpost.It is also crying up for a telephone and a generator.There is no additional room in the police outpost where criminals arrested by the police personnel can be interrogated and the seized vehicles can be kept. Though the outpost IC made several requests to the top police officials to look into their problems but to no avail.


According to the information,the police personnel of this outpost get regular information about the various crimes that happen under its jurisdiction ,but they can not go for raid or investigation as the outpost has no vehicles.


The locals of the area,however,said this correspondent that despite the numerous problems faced by this outpost , the IC Shankar Das, constables Mafidul Islam, Khagen Nath, Nipen Gogoi, nayak Biren Pathak, and Home Guard Jagannath Deka are doing their level best to serve the people of the area.
