Police outpost cries for attention

The police who are supposed to secure the people’s lives are themselves working under insecure conditions. The building which houses the police outpost at Thithimati near here is in a pathetic condition and might collapse anytime.

The building, which is almost 50 years old, has been constructed with mud and bricks.
The front portion is painted and looks as if it is in a good condition. However, the walls have developed cracks on all four sides. Bandicoots have dug holes in the walls. The wooden roof has become weak. The windows and roof tiles have also been damaged.

The out post has about 1.25 acres of land. However, the land records are still in the possession of the forest department. As a result, the authorities are not able to take up any new works on the land, said sources. The out post has one head constable and three constables.

“We had appealed to the higher authorities to repair the outpost building. Once we get a green signal, we will take up the works with available funds,” said Ponnampet sub-inspector Subramanya.
