Sundarban Coastal

Police Station

Map

The Sundarban Delta comprises of at least a 100 Islands among which only 05 Islands are inhabited by the native people of Sundarban. There are also large numbers of tributaries and water channels leading to the Bay of Bengal. The Sundarban Delta has 72 km of porous border with Bangladesh. The islands are inhabited by local fishermen and native people who earn their livelihood by fishing from the riverine area and collecting honey from the reserved forests. Prior to the setting of Sundarban Coastal Police Station and other Coastal PS like Mahipith Coastal PS and Frezargunge Coastal PS these areas remained out of the ambit of police. There was no supervision on the movement of various water crafts in the tributaries and water channels mentioned above. In this backdrop the Sundarban Coastal Police Station of South 24 Parganas started functioning on 19.02.2009 in the Sundarban Delta Area in a rented house at Chottomollakhali on a temporary basis. The new building for accommodating Sundarban Coastal PS has been constructed at Chttomollakhali Market. The PS serves an area of 2852 sq km and the total population is 1,31,803 (Male- 74,722 & Female – 57,081). 80% Hindus and 18% Muslims constitute the population living here. There are 6 gram panchayats, and one development block i.e Gosaba. The PS is neighbouring Gosaba PS.
