Railway police look for shelter over their heads Monday, December 3, 2001

NADIAD: The Nadiad railway station is the chief junction on the Ahmedabad-Vadodara route of the Western Railway. The Railway Police personnel here have since long been facing an acute problem of accommodation.
For a total of 75 railway constables, there are only 11 quarters at the local railway station premises. Due to this acute shortage, the policemen have had to keep put their kit-boxes on the railway station just near the police station. The railway police authorities' repeated pleas to railway authorities for allotment of land for construction of police quarters has not met with a favourable response.
At the Mehmedabad railway station _ the next halt after Nadiad _ policemen stay in tents pitched up on the railway platform. There is not even a proper railway 'chowky'.
