Gupta says the Kotwali police station is just a few paces away from here and they are letting free all these Khatalwallahs to defecate this locality. The care taker of ancient Shiv Temple Balak Baba near the Passport Office alleges that huge quantity of milk is being supplied to the concerning policemen since long here, and in return the Khatal owners get the patronage from them. Apart from this, one can find entire area littered with cowdung and the heavy discharge of urine of the cows and buffalos as they are left in open to roam freely in the daytime on streets.
The commuters on this road have to face harrowing times when the roaming animals come in between the roads. As a result, chances of an accident can’t be ruled out. As if this wasn’t enough, the stray animals stand across both flanks of the roads, which lead to Patna Regional Passport Office and Taramandal - putting lives in danger of those who drive through these roads. Sometimes, stray animals reach the divider just opposite the Allahabad Bank, Patna Museum Branch and cause an accident-like situation, which can claim anybody’s life. Now, the residents of this locality are anticipating that the state government redeems this locality from long-existing Khatals and other encroachments from the government land during the Bihar Centenary Day - otherwise it will only show the ugly face of Patna.
