Dumka: There is a huge shortage of police officers and soldiers in Santal Pargana.

Dumka: There is a shortage of police officers and soldiers in Santal Pargana for a long time. In recent years, there was a reduction in the vacancies due to the reinstatement of the posts of Inspector, but in the changing times, the department is again facing the shortage of police officers and soldiers. The situation is such that many police stations in this division do not even have reserve guards. In such a situation, when a law and order situation arises, police officers and security forces have to be sent from the police lines by the nearby police stations or the district headquarters. In such situations, sometimes the situation becomes frightening and dire. In districts like Deoghar of Santal Pargana, where there is movement of tourists and devotees throughout the year, there is movement of VIPs, in such places alone, 135 posts of Havildar and 339 posts of police force are lying vacant. Not only this, the posts of 71 Sub Inspectors and 101 Assistant Sub Inspectors are vacant. Here, five posts of officers like Inspector have also been kept vacant. That means 39.20 percent posts are lying vacant in this district. The situation in Sahibganj district is also very bad. There 29.11 percent posts have been kept vacant. In Sahibganj district, there are 68 vacancies out of 141 posts of Havildar and 132 out of 592 posts of police personnel. At the same time, the posts of 44 sub-inspectors and 37 assistant sub-inspectors are also vacant here. Of the 24.11 percent vacant posts in Dumka district, 39 each of SI and ASI, 34 of Havildar and 159 of police constables are lying vacant.

Many times officers go out with a guard while on patrol.

Due to shortage of police forces in police stations, many types of work, including patrolling, are affected. Due to lack of sufficient reserve guards, officers go out with only one or two guards in case of any emergency. Many times such situation occurs even during night patrolling. This is also the reason why criminals are able to escape from the police by dodging them. A large number of police forces available in the district are deployed as bodyguards of ‘Hon’ble’. Some have also been assigned duty at other sensitive places including courts. In such a situation, there is no 24X7 police vigilance for the safety of the common people. Due to lack of police forces, patrolling is also not done properly. In such a situation, elements like thieves, snatchers and criminals take full advantage of the lack of police.

What do officials say

DIG of Dumka area, Sudarshan Prasad Mandal said that there is a huge shortage of force as per the strength in Santal Pargana. There is no force commensurate with the demography and topography of Santal Pargana. There are world famous religious places like Deoghar and Basukinath, where devotees keep coming throughout the year. There is a lot of movement of VIPs also. In this regard also lack of strength is felt. Additional forces have been demanded from the department. We are also using the forces that have been made available to us in the form of QRT.
