POLICE are seeking to speed up construction work in the compound of a Kowloon station amid rank-and-file concerns it has influenced the deaths of two officers. It is understood some officers are blaming fung shui. For the past few months, workers have been preparing foundations for an indoor firing range in the grounds of Ngau Tau Kok police station. However, disturbing the soil has convinced some staff that construction work is responsible for the deaths of their colleagues. Ngau Tau Kok Division Constable Hon Wing-sang was shot dead during a scuffle in Kowloon Bay on July 22. Almost a week later, Kowloon East traffic constable Cheng Koon-leung died in a motorcycle crash near Choi Hung Estate. Ngau Tau Kok Divisional Commander, Acting Superintendent Llyn Edwards, said yesterday the matter did not deserve publicity. ''People are obviously upset at the deaths of these two officers,'' he said. ''But they are totally different incidents. ''It is a matter of coincidence that they were both in the same compound but that is all there is to it. We don't take it [concern over construction work] at all seriously. ''Nobody has come up to me to say there is any truth in it.'' Constable Hon, 19, with his colleagues, had stopped two men at a roadblock in Wang Chiu Road. One of the men allegedly snatched Constable Hon's gun and shot and killed him. Constable Cheng, 25, lost control of his motorcycle and collided with a light goods vehicle on the Kowloon bypass on July 28.
