Chandigarh, March 25
Extending help to vagabonds, poor and needy people, Chandigarh Police personnel have come forward to provide them food during these hard days when they have nowhere to go. Various SHOs in Chandigarh are identifying such people in the area of their police stations to provide all possible help during the curfew imposed in the city.
A team of the Industrial Area police station, led by the SHO, Inspector Jasbir Singh, visited a 38-year-old visually impaired man, identified as Billu, a native of Bihar, who has been living under a tree in Sector 29 for the past two years.
Billu, an alumnus of Panjab University, is an MA and BEd, and has no one to take care of him.
Inspector Jasbir said he would be taking care of Billu by providing him food till the time the situation in the city returns to normalcy.
The police today got his hands sanitised and also got his surroundings cleaned.
A similar initiative has been taken by Inspector Narinder Patial, SHO of the Sector 26 police station.
Inspector Patial has identified eight persons living either in the market corridors or in the open, who are being provided food.
“On the first day, food was provided twice to five persons. However, today the number has increased to eight and I will look for more such people to extend help to them,” Inspector Patial said.
Interestingly, the food for these people is cooked by Patial’s wife Sonia. “I don’t feel any burden of cooking food for so many people. In fact, I am ready to help more people in the time of need,” she said.
Needy people at Sarangpur were also distributed food by the SHO, Inspector Ram Rattan.
A police official said these people were also provided masks and their hands were sanitised.
Meanwhile, other cops are also taking other initiatives at their end to ensure the safety of city residents from Covid.
In one such effort, newspaper vendors in Mani Majra were also provided masks and hand sanitisers by the SHO, Mani Majra, Inspector Jaswinder Kaur.
