2 RPF inspectors charged with dereliction of duty, transferred
Kolkata: Two Railway Protection Force inspectors have been transferred from Howrah station after they were found negligent during performing their duties on Monday morning.
The Inspector General of Railway Protection Force, AK Mishra, had scrutinised the duty roster and compared it with the field duty details.
According to a source, on Monday morning, Mishra a resident of Alipore, went to Howrah station as a passenger.
He was carrying a backpack with him and took a round of the Howrah station. During the round, he found the number of the Railway Protection Force personnel was quite low.
After keeping a watch in and around the platforms, Mishra went to the CCTV camera monitoring room. Seeing the Inspector General in the CCTV monitoring room in casuals, RPF and other railway staff sensed danger and tried to make up for their faults but it was too late for them.
Mishra closely looked on each of the monitors and to make sure that the RPF personnel were not doing their duty properly.
Following the scrutiny at the CCTV camera monitoring room, Mishra checked the attendance register and the general diary register. As per the norms, RPF personnel have to register a General Diary (GD) while commencing his or her duty and he has to do the same after the end of their duty.
But during checking of the register, the IG found each day several RPF personnel had registered GD at the time of commencement of duty but not after the end of their duties.
He expressed that such activities prove that RPF personnel were not doing their duties properly.
Inspectors are liable to monitor the duties of RPF personnel.
The IG on the spot found two inspectors negligent on their part of work and transferred them to Liluah reserve post.
Later, he also warned other RPF personnel to take stringent action if anyone is found negligent while performing their duties.
