Imphal, June 22: The old adage goes that two is company . But in odd circumstances two can be chaos as it is happening at Sekmai police station right now where there is currently two officers-in- charge working concurrently but definitely not cohesively . According to sources, the previous officer-in-charge of the police station Y Joykumar has put his foot down and refused to allow his replacement A T omba to take charge. Tomba was transferred from CAR, Imphal West to the station in a major reshuffle of police officers carried out by the home department on May 23 last that affected more than 39 police officers. The new posting for the outgoing OC Joykumar could not ascertained yet even after several enquiries sprouting a theory that the prolonged stay could have been necessitated by possible failure of the home department to assign him his next duty . There is also possibility of the involvement of political bickering and one-upmanship behind the scene as there are unconfirmed reports suggesting that both officers are boasting the patronage of MLAs. Whatever be the truth, an unwanted situation which has no precedence in the history of the state home department was created and the staff and general population under the station a re getting to feel the singe of the resultant intense heat. Both inspectors are functioning as the rightful officer-in-charge of the same police station and using the full authorities assigned by the government rules. The predicament with the public is having no clue to sort out the puzzle which is whom to recognize as the real officer- in-charge so that they can approach him with their complaints and expect process for justice. Now , they are feeling awkward and confused about approaching either of them less the other feels hurt or gets antagonized. People of the area reeling under the effect of the uncomfortable stymie have drawn the attention of higher authorities to give utmost importance to the matter and take steps to resolve it amicably and without further ado. The irony of ironies is that while Sekmai police station gets cramped due to the presence of two officers-in- charge, Thoubal police station in the meanwhile has been waiting impatiently since the May 23 transfer for the incoming officer-in- char ge to report for duty . According to reports, inspector RK Anilkumar was transferred from his previous charge as OC of Bishnupur police station to OC of Thoubal police station but his arrival there is still awaited.
