Police on Thursday assured Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) of proper safety around its project to identify coal-bed methane (CBD) gas in the Maoist-prone area of Gomia block. Bokaro SP Chandan Kumar Jha and ASP (operation) Umesh Kumar visited the project site to get acquainted with the details of the project to lay out the safety measures.
A dispute during the land acquisition is also a problem which police officials assured to sort out amicably. The ASP said, “We have assured ONGC of providing all needed support. Visiting ONGC and meeting with officials was a kind of coordination meeting which we usually do. Around six months ago we had made similar visits. This time we visited with full Covid-19 precautions and discussed on the issues.”
Though ONGC has placed guards in clusters around two-three wells, it still needs strict police vigil for smooth operation.
