Margao: Deputy Superintendent of Police Raju Raut Desai assured residents of Chandor that from Monday a police official will be present near the school to monitor the traffic when the school starts and also ends. Assuring the people of acting against use of plastic, he however asked their assistance in identifying people dumping garbage by the roadside.
Desai was interacting with the villagers at a programme organised by Ganv Bhavancho Ekvott that was also attended by Chandor Cavorim Sarpanch Celina Coelho Furtado and Deputy Sarpanch Arlinda Tereza.
At the outset, he informed the people that he has seen the chaotic situation at the school and said from Monday a police official will be there to regulate the traffic when the school commences and ends and asked the people to be watchdogs and to inform the Maina Curtorim Police Inspector or him if the police personnel was not there.
He revealed that from May, a police sub-inspector has been posted at the outpost at Chandor thereby stopping the earlier practice of people having to go to Margao to file any complaint which will now be done at the outpost itself.
He also identified the police personnel on the village beat and directed the police to intensify patrolling at Monte chapel where a lot of youngsters gather in the night to consume alcohol and do other unsavoury activities.
The villagers also complained about youngsters moving in the night with vehicles whose silencers are tampered with to make terrible noise and asked the police to immediately remove a motorcycle that has been parked in the church compound for the last 10 days.
He sought the people’s help in various matters including informing the police about any migrant staying in a rented premise so that their tenant verification form could be filled. He also asked the people to inform the police whenever any salesman comes to their house so that their authenticity can be verified by the police.
“Police cannot know when and where the salesman comes so the people should inform the police to verify as not many people have the habit of asking for the salesman for his identity card that he is supposed to carry at all times,” he said.
Responding to the people’s demand, he said the police will act against people dumping garbage by the roadside and pointed out that police have the powers to attach the vehicle. “However, we shall need help from the people who can take a photograph of the person dumping the waste and send it to us,” he said.
