Ludhiana, April 7

The Ludhiana police inaugurated the newly built Katani Kalan police post under the Koom Kalan police station jurisdiction.

The police post has been built on modern lines from public funding on the panchayati land donated in 2009.

Police Commissioner Rakesh Agrawal inaugurated the post. Additional DCP 4 Rupinder Kaur Sra and post in-charge ASI Ashok Kumar were honoured on the occasion for their efforts to built the post in just four months.

ADCP Sra said the earlier post had only one room, where there was no space for staff and visitors. The post also lacked essential facilities.

“This police post has been built on modern lines. It includes a lock up, an in charge office, an MHC office, an IO room, barracks for stay of police officials, proper seating area for public, and separate public washrooms for men and women,” added the ADCP.

The cost of the project was estimated to be around Rs 20 lakh. The amount was contributed in cash and kind. Cement was contributed by the panchayats, bricks were donated from the brick kiln, construction was supported by the highway unit and the labour was sponsored by the local industrial units.

The inaugural event was attended by IPS Sachin Gupta, JCP (Rural) Ashwini Kapoor, DCP (Law and Order) and other police officials.
