Police outpost to be ready soon at Rallagedda Kotturu

The police outpost at Rallagedda Kotturu, on the way to Korukonda in Chintapalli mandal, would be ready soon, Superintendent of Police Rahul Dev Sharma said on Monday.

Rains hindered the construction activity, but work would resume soon, Mr. Sharma said, and added that the facility would be ready in a short time.

“It is located in a difficult terrain and workers are not prepared to go there,” he said.

The structure is being constructed by taking all the precautions needed for a police outpost, which would help the police dominate the area, including the nearby hill, and control the Maoist activity. Pre-fab technology is being used in its construction.

This is the first outpost being constructed in the Agency. Another has been sanctioned at Roodakota. The outpost can house 100 personnel. It will have all facilities and ensures tight security unlike the outposts established several years ago, which were temporary structures and vulnerable to attacks.

On his recent visit to the Agency, Mr. Sharma, who took charge a fortnight ago, said he wanted to see how the system worked there and the facilities available for the personnel, besides having an interaction with them.

Following the death of four persons in an accident on the National Highway near Anakapalle two days ago and an accident involving a lorry and a four-wheeler near Elamanchili (in which there were no casualties), the rural police have decided to initiate sterner steps to check accidents and reckless driving.

Mr. Sharma said that vigil on drunken driving would be intensified by deploying more men and alcometers.
