PANJIM: 

Goa Human Right Commission (GHRC) will now inspect the unhealthy working and living conditions of the Policemen of two Police Stations in the state.

GHRC while hearing the complaint filed by advocate Aires Rodrigues directed the Secretary of the Commission to inspect and verify the factual working and living conditions of the policemen at the Old Goa Police Station in North Goa and Colva Police Station in South Goa. 

The Secretary has been directed to carry out the inspection within 15 days and submit a detailed report to the Commission within 30 days.

A per complaint the policemen in the State were being made to work very long hours amidst pathetic and very appalling working conditions.

While disputing the stand taken by the DGP that all amenities including canteen and recreational facilities were available at every police station, Rodrigues informed the Commission that the reply filed by the DGP does not depict the real and factual position regarding the working and living conditions of the police personnel and sought that at least two police stations, one in the North and one in the South be inspected to verify the factual position.

Rodrigues in his complaint to the GHRC while alleging that most policemen get a break only after many days of work has stated that this has been taking a toll on their personal lives with a spate of incidents that has exposed the stress related fragility affecting the police force.
