Bhubaneswar Has Become Too Difficult For One DCP To Manage, It Will Have A Second One Soon

**Bhubaneswar:** In a recent development, the Commissionerate Police is planning to have another territorial DCP as the town is growing and there is difficulty in effective supervision of the law and order situation.

Police Commissioner Y.B Khurania told OMMCOM NEWS, “Shortly we will be putting a proposal to the Home Department in this regard. The capital city will be bifurcated in two zones. One zone will consist of Mancheswar, Saheed Nagar, Kharavela Nagar, Capital, Laxmisagar, upto Dhauli and the other will include Jatni, Khandagiri, Tomando, Nayapalli and Chandrasekhapur. Each zone will be controlled by a DCP as managing 20 police stations in Bhubaneswar is beyond the physical capacity of one DCP.”

The proposal will be put forward within a fortnight, which will be then executed by the government.
