Patna: The Bihar government on Monday promised early construction of a building of a sensitive police station in Naxal-hit Lakhisarai district where policemen feel insecure to venture out after evening.
       
Replying to a starred question of BJP's Prem Ranjan Patel in the state Assembly, Minister In-charge of Home Vijay Chaudhary said that Kajra police station presently functioning from a make-shift house arranged by locals.
      
The land for building the police station, he said, has been identified and process for construction of building would start in the next financial year. Patel in his question mentioned that Kajra police station was insecure due to which policemen do not venture out of the police station after 6 pm.
     
He said the police station had been twice raided by Maoists who took away arms. The police station area also witnessed a major Naxal strike in 2010 in which eight policemen were killed by extremists. The BJP MLA said, since the police station was running from a make-shift house it was difficult to regulate its daily functioning.
