Doraha, December 6
The SSP Khanna, has shifted the officers incharge of all four first-aid posts of Khanna to police stations. The charges of the first aid posts has now been assigned to the officers incharge of the chowki of the area where the particular first-aid post is existing.

According to Mr Gursharanjit Singh, general secretary , Punjab State Apex Body of NGO’s , “It is indeed shocking as the incharges of the area police stations are too busy to attend to the accidents victims and moreover the incharges of the first aid posts have been specially trained for providing first-aid and have been recognised by the Human Rights Commission.” “The first-aid posts, he added, would wither away soon if the existing state vailed.”

According to Mr Gursharanjit Singh, “as per the new orders, the first-aid posts have been fused with the nearby police stations and chowkis as a result of which the functioning of the first-aid posts will be adversely affected. The sole aim of the first-aid posts is to save the dying and if they reach the spot late, it is too late for the dying person and the entire purpose of the first-aid team would stand defeated.”

Contradicting the statement, Mr Karnail Singh, chowki, incharge, Doraha said, “Shifting of incharges of first-aid posts to various chowkis or police stations will not affect the functioning of the first-aid posts in anyway. The post will be functioning as before. Only yesterday, when an accident took place near Kanech under Sahnewal police station between a truck and three buses, our team rushed to the spot as soon as we got the message and admitted the injured to the hospital. The same day our ambulance reached the spot immediately when a labourer fell from a train near Khanna and took him to Rajindra Hospital at Patiala.
