The all-woman police station in Sector 5 of Mansa Devi Complex, Panchkula, needs a pied piper, it seems. As per the staff members there, some big black rats have eaten important evidence and documents besides biting their colleagues. The rats eat almost anything they get hold of such as plastic baskets, files, papers, wooden cupboards and even sealed packets. A constable informed that one of her colleagues was bitten by a rat last month and had to be administered an anti-plague injection. The sweeper of the police station said she removed a large amount of rat poop every day. The Station House Officer, Manjit Kaur, informed that they had tried many rat killers and repellents but all in vain. We have used a number of rat killers. Even the pest control treatment proved ineffective, says Manjit. In the SHOs room, a wooden cupboard has been eaten at the edges and a possibility of mice entering it cannot be ruled out. While rats are rarely seen during the day when the police station is bustling with people, they can be seen roaming in the evening. The maximum harm is caused at night when rats climb tables and eat baskets and the papers left in the open. The women police station was inaugurated on August 28 last year by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar. It is run by the women staff, comprising three sub-inspectors, two assistant sub-inspectors, three head constables, 10 constables and an Assistant Commissioner of Police. The location of the police station will be shifted to Sector 5 next year. All readers are invited to post comments responsibly. Any messages with foul language or inciting hatred will be deleted.
