DHUBRI: A 300-metre storm water drain is to be constructed to ease water-logging in the police reserve connecting Dhubri bus terminal.

Earlier on the same day, foundation stone of three police barracks were laid by Bilasipara (East) legislator Ashok Kumar Singhi, Dhubri Deputy Commissioner Anant Lal Gyani and Superintendent of Police Anand Mishra respectively. The three barracks will come up in Dhubri, Sapatgram and Tamarhat of Dhubri district.

The barracks will be constructed under Moitri scheme. Mishra also informed that this barracks would be constructed with Pre-Engineering Building (PEB) technology, developed by Housefed.
