Jamshedpur : The local administration has for the first time deployed magistrates at the hot spots for the picnickers this season. The public places where the police personnel have been deployed with magistrates include Jubilee Park, Dimna Lake, Hudco Dam in Govindpur and Narwa dam near Jadugora.
Revealing about the development, Dhalbhum sub-divisional officer Suraj Kumar said that the place like parks and dam sites in and around get crowded with picnickers around this period of the year.
“Keeping the sensitivity of such places, the duty of the magistrates had been assigned from Saturday itself and they will have to be present at the picnic spots as mentioned above on December 31 and New Year also.
When a magistrate is posted around, the police men will not find it difficult to handle the situation as they will take necessary instruction from the magistrate,” explained Kumar while talking to about relevance of deputing the magistrates at the picnic spots.
Deputy superintendent of police (police control room) Sudhir Kumar said that they have made adequate police arrangement to ensure safe picnic celebration at Jubilee Park.
“The police constables, including lady cops as well as plain-cloth policemen have been deployed in the Jubilee Park and also in the adjoining Tata Steel Zoological Garden where maximum number people use to come. The cops kept on moving around in their respective areas to ensure the crime like molestation and chain-snatching is not taking place,” said Kumar.
Senior superintendent of police, Anoop T Mathew said that instructions have already been given to the concerned police stations. “Like in past this year too we want to ensure safety for the people. We have always provided armed police men for the security of the places like Dimna Lake, Jubilee Park and other parks as well as the places of attractions,” Mathew said.
Beside the police men, women cops will also be deployed in the picnic spots. He pointed out the policing at the picnic spots will be monitored continuously by deputy superintendent of police of the concerned areas.
He said apart from the deployment of the additional police forces, triple-riding, drunk driving and use of pressure horns by the bike riders will be prohibited during the Christmas and New Year revelry.
He said traffic police cops and members of Quick Response Team (QRT) which is comprised of guards of private security company Panther Security and the police men will remain mobile to ensure streets are free from anti-social elements.
