DC bats for better honour for police martyrs

Deputy Commissioner S B Bommanhalli has stated that the police, who protected people by fighting against internal anti-social elements, should also get all the honors given to soldiers, who protect the country.

He noted this while speaking after paying homage to the police martyrs at the Police Martyrs’ Day programme organised by the Police Department here on Saturday.

He said, police were also sacrificing their life for the country like how the soldiers were doing. But they (police martyrs) were not getting the honour given to the soldier martyrs. As a result of this, the families of police martyrs were experiencing a lot of problems, he added.

Therefore, police martyrs should also get all the honor and facilities given to solder martyrs. Then only the families of slain policemen would live peacefully, he added.

He said, police personnel’s role in protecting internal security was very important. The country would achieve progress only if there was peace in society. Police had made a significant contribution for the development of the country. Therefore, every citizen should respect police personnel. The service of police was praise worthy, he added.

Judge commends police

Speaking on the occasion, District Judge Ramachandra Huddar said, absence of police would create chaos in society. This would also lead to unrest and civil disturbances.

He said, law and order was maintained and criminal activities, injustices were reduced in society only as the police personnel were working day and night.

He said, the police were doing a good job in curtailing anti-social and anti-national activities. But, the crime rate would come down further if the police increased their efficiency, he added.

“Everyone should love the work they do. Then only one can achieve something in life. Police should make use of the opportunity they got for serving society with more dedication. It is everybody’s duty to pay respect to the police martyr,” he said.

Superintendent of Police G Sangeeta read the names of 350 police personnel who died on duty in the previous year as a mark of respect during the programme.

Police personnel under the command of Parade Commander Bharat Talawar fired in air three rounds as a mark of honor for the police martyrs. Later, there was a march past.

Judges Savitri Gujji, N N Bellolli, retired police officers, and others were present.
