Rain water reportedly entered the police station in Gidderbaha on Thursday night. "The building is very old and it was possibly built before Independence of the country during the British period and is situated in a low-lying area. The rain water gushed into the police station on Thursday night," said a source.

"The water entered computer rooms of the police station besides the record rrom and malkhana (a store to preserve case properties) and weapons rooms were are also likely to get damaged by the rainwater," the source claimed.

The police personnel had to shift all the computers, record and other things to some other place when the water in the police station reached two to three feet level.

When contacted, Narinder Singh, station house officer of the police station denied any loss to the record or weapons or computers to large extent.

"Yes, the rainwater has entered the police station and we have shifted the police station to the premises of the cotton market which has been built recently. It is a temporary shifting and as soon as the water gets dry, we shall again shift to the old building of the police station," he added.

The higher officials from the civil administration reportedly also visited the place to take stock of the situation besides the police officials.
