Hoshiarpur, October 21

Observing the 61st Police Commemoration Day here, District Police Chief SSP Navjot Singh Mahal on Wednesday reiterated to address the issues of martyrs’ families on priority. Deputy Commissioner Apneet Riyait, Senior Superintendent of Police Navjot Singh Mahal and other officers paid rich tributes to the police personnel, who were martyred while discharging their duties.

Recalling the services rendered by the bravehearts in line with their duties, the Deputy Commissioner said the Punjab Police had played a pivotal role in restoring the peace in the region, which would always instill a sense of nationalism and patriotism among our youngsters. She said the Police Commemoration Day was celebrated on October 21 every year to remember the 10 brave-hearts CRPF soldiers, who were martyred in an ambush by the Chinese force at Hotspring area of Laddakh on this day in 1959.

SSP Navjot Singh Mahal said from September 1, 2019, to August 31, 2020, as many as 264 police officers/officials had laid their lives across the country in line with their duty. “The supreme sacrifices made by police personnel would be remembered by one and all as our martyred protected the country from inimical forces and nefarious designs to destabilise the hard-earned peace. The directions had already been issued to all police officers to give priority to the issues pertaining to the families of martyrs and that too within minimal time,” said SSP.

Meanwhile, the names of all martyrs were read out by DSP Tanda Daljit Singh Khakh. The SSP also inspected the guard of honour led by the parade commander DSP Gurpreet Singh.
