Officials from various police stations of the region falling under the jurisdiction of Malerkotla, Ludhiana (Rural), Ludhiana and Khanna police districts paid tributes to all those who died fighting terrorists for the unity and integrity of the nation to mark Police Commemoration Day.

A large number of police personnel from Ahmedgarh City, Ahmedgarh Sadar, Raikot, Dehlon, Jodhan, Sudhar, Malaudh, Mullanpur Dakha and Payal police stations took part in annual special commemorative parades, organised at their respective headquarters on Thursday morning.

Addressing the gatherings, SSPs Ravjot Kaur Grewal, Rajbachan Singh Sandhu and Gursharandeep Singh Grewal recollected sacrifices of the police personnel who died fighting terrorists during the dark days of the border state and CRPF personnel who laid down their lives on the Indo-China Border in Ladakh on October 21, 1959.

Over 150 families of the martyrs from the region were felicitated during functions held at Malerkotla, Jagraon, Khanna and Ludhiana. Floral tributes were paid and wreaths laid on the memorials at the police lines at various district headquarters by all police and civil officers.

Senior police officers read out the names of all martyrs and grievances of families of the martyrs were heard and redressed by circle officers.

They said the Punjab Police had lost two DIGs, three SSPs, four SPs, 12 DSPs, 32 inspectors, 61 Sis, 111 ASIs, 268 head constables, 294 home guards and 817 SPOs during the days of militancy in the border state. They appreciated that rank and file in the uniformed force has been keeping the tradition of hard work, courage, valour and dedication to work to transform the motto of Punjab Police ‘Police to its last particle is duty’ into a noticeable reality.
