Adv. Aires Rodrigues has sought the intervention of the Goa Human Rights Commission (GHRC) over the lack of proper amenities and poor working conditions at the Old Goa Police Station.
Adv. Rodrigues has in his complaint drawn the attention of the GHRC that based on his complaint in 2016 the officials of the GHRC inspected the Old Goa Police Station and that in its inquiry report on 21st December 2017 the GHRC had pointed out seven shortcomings while directing the authorities to take steps to improve the working conditions at the Police Station.
Adv. Rodrigues has in his complaint further stated that despite over three long years having elapsed the authorities have not taken any steps whatsoever to comply with the inquiry report of the Commission to improve the pathetic state of affairs at the Old Goa Police Station while the inhuman working and living conditions of the staff at the police station amounts to violation of their Human Rights.
Adv. Rodrigues in his complaint has also pointed out that the Old Goa Police Station despite its very wide jurisdiction of 10 villages in addition to Ribandar has for decades not been provided with proper premises which is adversely affecting the working of the police station which is deficient in basic amenities for the staff and the public who visit the Police station.
Adv. Rodrigues has sought that the Chief Secretary and the Director General of Police be directed to explain why no measures have been taken to improve the state of affairs at the Old Goa Police Station in terms of providing spacious premises and proper amenities as was directed by the GHRC in its inquiry report dated 21st December 2017.
