Kumram Bheem Asifabad: Cops stood out in taking up a slew of community outreach programmes in the first year following the formation of Kumram Bheem Asifabad district, bringing respite to dwellers of remote pockets of the backward district. They created road facilities to interior habitations that were neglected and disconnected from the mainstream for decades. Also, they won laurels for playing a vital role in reducing dropouts.
Superintendent of Police Sunpreet Singh and police officials working in different parts left no stone unturned to do their bit for the needy, in particular, the hapless adivasis who inhabit in isolated hamlets, braving all odds. Remarkably, he along with local cops strived hard in improving connectivity of certain habitations, enabling residents to access to the outer world.
Singh, who pursued civil engineering course before being selected as Indian Police Service officer, drew the design of a 4km gravel road formed between Gopera and Modiguda in remote Tiryani mandal. That indicated his devotion to transforming lives of civilians who were deprived of road connectivity. This facility helped aboriginal tribals, belonging to not only the two villages but also for 10 hamlets of the region to easily reach the outer world.
Dwellers of Lovva or Loha, a hamlet in Girivelli gram panchayat of interior Dahegoan mandal, are now able to commute to anywhere because of a 6 km-long earthen road laid by sub-inspector Deekonda Ramesh on December 21. They started using public transportation system with TSRTC operating bus services to their habitation with the advent of the road, on the same day.
Apart from creating basic amenities of rural parts, the police department organised eight medical camps in tribal hamlets of the district, besides distributing drugs to participants and eyeglasses to elderly persons free of cost. They won accolades from DGP Anurag Sharma and Karimnagar range DIG C Ravi Varma for conceiving novel initiatives ever since the formation of the new district.
At the same time, the cops laid focus on sending dropout students to schools. Following efforts of the cops, nearly 150 students of Sirpur (U), Tiryani and Dahegoan mandals rejoined their institutions. The cops provided the necessary infrastructure to the schools. They also created awareness among parents over the importance of education
