Palamu Police held a feast in on the bed of the 120 feet wide rain fed river the Amanat on Sunday. Police sources said it was to unwind and de stress. SP, Palamu, Ajay Linda, played host perfect while his officials took all care of the guests, which included police officials and a group of scribes.
People, who attended this feast said SP spent more time with them under the Sun discussing myriad things not necessarily related to crime, extremism etc.
Civil administration led by DC Shantanu K Agrahari had hosted a similar feast, which was held in the hall of the Pdt Deendayal Updhyaya Smirity Bhavan just last week and this feast was held at night. Linda and his team hosted it in the afternoon and in Sun and on sand of the river Amanat.
The feast was to share experiences the police officials had in the conduct of the Assembly election here with the journalists who too exchanged their ways of doing coverage of it as well. SDPO Chhaterpur Shambhu K Singh first dispatched five extremists to Daltonganj with police officials for taking them on judicial remand and then rushed to join this feast.
A cop said, “Such a break is necessary from the drudgery of 24x7 police duty as this kind of break gives some ounce of new energy to get on work with more efficiency.”
Cops had to rope in professional cooks to prepare food for more than 300 people said officer in charge of Chainpur police station Sunit Kumar.
Police officials were too conscious not to leave behind any trail of dirt and leftovers on the bed of river Amanat there as every leftover was picked up from the sand said SDPO Sandip K Gupta who pushed off on leave after the feast saying “ This is my first leave after joining here last year”.
Sources said back in a village Patarya under Chainpur police station a brawl erupted in a village panchayat wherein an alleged supporter of KN Tripathy was slapped by some people allegedly belonging to BJP MLA Alok Chourasia following which police intervened and calmed down the situation.
OC Chainpur Sunit Kumar on being contacted said, “SDPO Gupta and I rushed to the village and took note of the incident. The brawl started in a village panchayat. Police will act once the written complaint comes to us.”
