A table, a chair, two constables, and a senior police officer - sitting on the side of a road: this is how the Dubhad police station in eastern Uttar Pradesh's Ballia district, on the border with Bihar, has worked for a week now. Ten feet down from this temporary set up, the police station building is inundated by water. To the left of entrance, the prison barrack is empty, and unlocked. It too is filled with flood water. To the right, the office in-charge's room, the ammunition depot and the file room are all also under water.
