Agartala, July 22, 2022: Once again, the Mahila Police Volunteers (MPVs) of West Tripura district knocked the doors of the Police Headquarters here as they are being deprived of their honorarium for the last few months and don’t receive due respect in their respective police stations.
It is reported that the Mahila Police Volunteers (MPVs) posted under various police stations in the West Tripura and Gomati districts complained that they are deprived of honorariums for the last several months. The government employed them with the duty of informing about criminal activities under their police stations’ jurisdictions. The government was supposed to pay them 1,000 rupees per month. Although they got that money for the first few months, the Mahila Police Volunteers assigned to the West Tripura district have not been getting this honorarium for the past 16 months.
They approached the District Magistrate of West Tripura district to demand the payment their honorarium. But from there it was advised to meet the Superintendent of Police of the West Tripura district. Thereafter the MPVs wrote a letter to the Superintendent of Police of the West Tripura district. But they have not been informed about this till now.
On Friday, they went to the state police headquarters to meet the police superintendent of the western district. They said 250 Mahila police volunteers in West Tripura district have not yet received the money. But more than 200 volunteers in Gomati district have already received their money. The women police volunteers want to know when this money will be paid. They said that they were employed for a two-year contract. They are also worried about what to do next. They further complained that they are not being given importance in the police station.
