Kolkata: The West Bengal police have chalked out a plan to modernise and upgrade 18 police stations in the Maoist-hit Jangalmahal area.

The plan to fortify these police stations is the part of the Centre’s integrated proposal to modernise about 400 Maoist-hit police stations in the country.

The Centre has sanctioned Rs 26 crore for the project to be carried out in West Midnapore, Purulia and Bankura districts.

Apart from strengthening building infrastructure, the proposal also envisages equipping these police stations with highly sophisticated communication devices and installation of solar power system for uninterrupted power supply.

“All these police stations will look like mini forts. They will be able to counter any attack by the Maoists,” said a senior Police officer.

Of these 18 police stations, eight are in West Midnapore district, which is considered as a Maoist hotbed. These police stations are at Lalgarh, Sankrail, Jamboni, Salboni, Nayagram, Goaltore, Belpahari and Binpur.

Five police stations in Purulia that will come under the facelift plan are: Bandwan, Balarampur, Arsa, Jhalda and Baghmundi. The other five police stations in the list - Sarenga, Barikul, Ranibandh, Roypur and Taldangra -are in Bankura.

All these police stations would be surrounded by eight feet high walls, sources said. Equipped with satellite-linked communication networks, these police stations will be able to connect to any other police station in the state in case of an emergency.

Moreover, all these police stations will have adequate space to accommodate central force jawans. The state will appoint additional police personnel who would be deployed in these police stations.
