Scores of people from different walks of life came together and participated in the march against crime organised on the Police Commemoration Day on Monday at Alwal in Cyberabad.
Students from local government and private schools, senior citizens, women, activists of different political parties and members of trade unions took part in the march flagged off by Cyberabad Police Commissioner C.V. Anand. Along with the public, the Commissioner too marched with them for nearly two kilometres before addressing the gathering at Alwal police station.
Mr. Anand recalled that the Cyberabad police had worked relentlessly during the recently held Ganesh, Dasara and Bakrid festivals. “While you were spending time with families and celebrating festivals, all our policemen stayed away from their respective families and attended to duties organising bandobust. Just recognise this hard work by police,” he said.
Expressing happiness over the participation of large number of residents voluntarily in the rally, the Commissioner said recognition of the service rendered by policemen encourages the latter to give their best for society. He gave away prizes to schoolchildren, who won the essay, elocution and drawing competitions held.
Accompanied by Malkajgiri DCP V. Siva Kumar, he later laid the foundation stones for police outposts at Jawaharnagar in Alwal and Cherlapally in Kushaiguda to cater to the needs of local public and industrial units’ security needs.
A rest house built with the help of local industrialists and civilians was inaugurated at Kushaiguda police station. It was named after the Sub-Inspector and the constable killed in naxal violence in Manchal police station on city outskirts in 2001.
