Inspector General of Nepal Police, Dhiraj Pratap Singh, has directed the subordinate bodies to identify areas vulnerable to disasters and remain on standby with preparedness and response plans.

While inaugurating today a police building constructed on the premises of the Kathmandu Valley Special Security Police Battalion Tripureshwor , the Nepal Police chief asked the bodies concerned to assess and ascertain areas prone to water-induced disasters such as inundation, floods and landslides and remain on standby to deal with untoward incidents.

"The Nepal Police has its role on the frontline in crime investigation, management of peace and security and disaster response," he said.

"In some cases, we have experiences of being criticized for our failure to hold on to our patience which led to human loss. That's why is necessary for us to control our emotions as per the context and deal with the situation rationally and consciously, "he asserted.

Similarly, Kathmandu Chief District Officer Govinda Prasad Rijal spoke the need of capacity enhancement of Nepal Police force as per the changing time and situation. He took time to express his hope that the Battalion would do its role competently for combating crime in the Kathmandu Valley.

Kathmandu Valley Police Office Chief and Additional Inspector General of Police Rabindra Bahadur Dhanuk was also present on the occasion.

The facility was constructed at the cost of around Rs 23o million, according to Battalion Chief and Superintendent of Police Sanuram Bhattarai.
