Indore (Madhya Pradesh)
Residents of Nipania and Pipliyakumar want a separate police station for their locality for better security.
This demand came to the fore during a combined meeting of residents' association of colonies in Ward 36 and 37. The meeting was organised at Saraswati Temple premises in Tulsi Nagar on Sunday.
Discussion was also held on civic and other problems in various colonies in Nipania and Pipliyakumar localities.
The meeting observed that the jurisdiction area of Lasudia police station is very large. Nipania and Pipliyakumar are also part of the Lasudia police station’s jurisdiction.
“Since Lasudia police station has limited resources and staff it can’t provide effective security in the entire area under its jurisdiction,” the office-bearers noted.
The meeting observed that a new police station is required for the convenience of the residents of the Pipliyakumar and Nipania areas and the demand for the same would be raised before home minister Narottam Mishra and Indore police commissioner Harinarayanachari Mishra.
The residents also expressed concern over the mushrooming of hostels and hotels in the area which are being constructed alleged under criminal-mafia nexus.
On the plea of residents, the residents' association decided to bring this matter before the authority concerned to curb illegal and unauthorized constructions of hotels and hostels in residential areas of Nipania and Pipliyakumar.
In the meeting, the residents also raised the issue of cemeteries near Advance Academy School and BCM Paradize in Scheme No 134.
Keeping in view the religious sentiments of the people of the area and the inconveniences being caused to them, they urged residents' association to make a request to the district administration for the shifting of these cemeteries away from residential areas.
The meeting was attended by residents of various colonies of Nipania and Pipliyakumar falling under Ward 36 and 37, including Tulsi Nagar, Mahalaxmi Nagar, Sai Kripa Colony, MR 4, Chikitsak Nagar, Pushp Vihar Extension, Sun City, Apollo DB City, BCM Paradise, Pawan Dham, Amrit Palace etc.
