Goalpara, October 2: With a view to make morning walks safe and hazard-free for women and senior citizens, and with a view to bring awareness about the tural beauty of Hulukanda hill and the river view of Kachari Ghat areas of the town, the Goalpara police on Saturday declared this zone as ‘Traffic-free walking zone’ from 5 am to 6.30 am.
“We have decided to make the roads linking Chandaria-Borpukhuri-JN Road-Kachari Road-Pub Pahartoli a walking zone from 5 am to 6.30 am. This will be a ‘No-entry’ zone so that senior citizens and women can take their morning walk without the tension of being knocked down or being disturbed in any way,” stated a report sent to the media by Amitava Sinha, Superintendent of Police. This was done in view of the celebration of State Police Day on Saturday.
The Goalpara police on Saturday also arranged a police-public run for peace from Kachari Ghat to the office of the Superintendent of Police. More than 200 participants made the programme successful, including Amitava Sinha, SP, A.Basumatary, ASP, Mohd Ismail, secretary of Citizens Forum, and several other leading citizens and jourlists. The programme was flagged off by Anta Roy, a former sportsman and policeman. A blood dotion programme and plantation drive in the police reserve were also part of the Police Day celebration.
