Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, June 8, 2015: Karnataka  Police Department is gearing up for  a police station at Dharmasthala, according to Sharanappa S.D., Superintendent of Police, Dakshina Kannada. He told media   on June 7, Sunday, that the  Home Department has cleared the matter under the Criminal Procedure Code for setting up the station which would be called "Belthangady rural police station".

The department had identified about 30 cents of government land near the entrance to the temple town, between Snanaghatta and the entrance arch, to construct the PS building.

Acquiring the land from the Revenue Department and constructing the building would take some time, opening the station in a rented building temporarily is hoped. He said that as per the notification nine villages under the jurisdiction of Belthangady police station and another nine from the limits of Uppinangady police stations have been selected to bring them under the proposed new police station at Dharmasthala.

SP Sharanappa said that a proposal to upgrade the police outpost at Bellare, Sullia taluk as a station has been sent to the government.   According to the proposal, some villages from Puttur rural, Kadaba and Sullia police stations would be carved out to bring them under Bellare police station as per the norms laid down by the National Police Commission, he said.

The SP  said that the government had dropped a proposal to upgrade a police outpost at Nelyadi on the Mangaluru-Bengaluru national highway to a police station.
