Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh hosted police officials and personnel, across ranks, for a dinner at his residence here on Saturday, as a mark of appreciation for their efforts and role in busting several terror modules and criminal gangs, including those behind the targeted killings in the state, over the past seven months.
More than 80 police officials and personnel attended the dinner, where the Chief Minister extended his personal thanks to each of them and congratulated them for their success in cracking some of the toughest cases of the recent past, the most notable of them being the murder of seven RSS, Shiv Sena and Dera Sauda leaders in six cases.
The Chief Minister lauded their exemplary courage, determination and hard work, which led to the busting of the terror modules and arrest of several gangsters out to destabilize the state. Addressing the men, Captain Amarinder extolled them for bringing honour to the force while saving the people of Punjab from further mayhem that the suspects would otherwise have unleashed on the state.
The Chief Minister also instructed the DGP to set up a system of selecting and rewarding the `policeman of the month’ to any personnel of the police force who plays a remarkable role, either in solving criminal cases by investigations or providing community service of outstanding nature to the people of the state.
