Jalandhar, October 21

The 61st Police Commemoration Day was observed at the PAP ground here today. Dinkar Gupta, DGP, paid tributes to the martyrs of the Punjab police and paramilitary forces. This year, the event was a low-key affair due to Covid-19 pandemic, and the parents of the martyrs were not invited.

The DGP said from 1981 to 2020, 2,721 police officers had sacrificed their lives for the state and the country. Hailing the efforts of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, the DGP said the government had ensured the welfare of the wards of the martyrs on priority.

The DGP lauded the bravery of Patiala ASI Harjeet Singh, whose hand was severed in an attack in Patiala, and the sacrifices of Moga's Jagmohan Singh and Jalandhar's Gurmeet Singh, who lost their lives while discharging their duties last year.

Expressing satisfaction over the humanitarian steps initiated by the Punjab Police amid Covid-19 crisis, the DGP said the state police had helped about 12 crore people with dry ration and langar.

"As many as 40 jawans and officers have succumbed while serving society during the pandemic," the DGP said. — TNS
