PAN­VEL: A po­lice sta­tion at New Pan­vel which has noth­ing to do with New Pan­vel node will now be known as Pan­vel taluka po­lice sta­tion, with per­mis­sion be­ing granted by the state home depart­ment ear­lier this week, ac­cord­ing to sources.

The de­ci­sion is now go­ing to put an end to the con­fu­sion among res­i­dents over the ju­ris­dic­tion of the po­lice sta­tion. Since the po­lice sta­tion was es­tab­lished, a large part of the ru­ral ar­eas of Pan­vel taluka fall un­der it. Hence it has been named so now.

The New Pan­vel po­lice sta­tion of Navi Mumbai po­lice com­mis­sion­er­ate in­cludes the east­ern and south­ern ar­eas of Pan­vel taluka. When the po­lice sta­tion was formed, the Pan­vel city po­lice ex­isted. The new po­lice sta­tion was es­tab­lished ow­ing to a rise in pop­u­la­tion in the re­gion.

Deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (ad­min­is­tra­tion) Prashant Khaire, said, “Though it was named New Pan­vel po­lice sta­tion, it had noth­ing to do with New Pan­vel node. Since the New Pan­vel po­lice sta­tion premises were in Pan­vel, there was con­stant con­fu­sion among res­i­dents.”

“Those in the nodes came to New Pan­vel po­lice sta­tion to reg­is­ter their com­plaints, while those from the ru­ral ar­eas went to Pan­vel city po­lice sta­tion. At times, even the new of­fi­cers and per­son­nel at the po­lice would get con­fused,” said Khaire.

“There was con­fu­sion in the ad­min­is­tra­tion too. Three years ago when the Khan­desh­war po­lice sta­tion was es­tab­lished, the New Pan­vel node was trans­ferred un­der its ju­ris­dic­tion. Since then, the con­fu­sion at New Pan­vel po­lice sta­tion in­creased fur­ther,” added Khaire.

Khaire said the name change will now put an end to all the con­fu­sion as it clearly states that it is for the ru­ral ar­eas.
