Gadchiroli Aug. 31 (District Correspondent) Superintendent of Police Mr. Nilotpal celebrated the festival of ‘Raksha Bandhan’ by getting the rakhis tied by the women police officials from police Assistance Centre of village Gatta (Jambiya) under sub-division Hedri.
Gatta is known as Naxal-affected, remotely situated and tribal-dominated area of Gadchiroli district. The students of Zilla Parishad Digital School, Jajavandi also participated in the Rakshabandhan programme and tied rakhis to all police officers and jawans on the occasion.
While congratulating the women Mr. Nilotpal said, “Women Police Officers at the various posts, sub-posts and police assistance centres in remote areas of Gadchiroli Police Force are at the forefront of post security, anti-Maoist campaign and other security related affairs. Many times, due to duty they have to celebrate this festival at the post. They cannot participate in the family programmes. That is why it was decided to celebrate the festival of Rakshabandhan today with these women police officers who put their duty first”. He also wished Raksha Bandhan to all the women.
Along with this, the hard-serving C-60 personnel cannot celebrate Raksha Bandhan with their families while serving in highly sensitive areas. Therefore, the students of Phule-Ambedkar College of Social Work, Gadchiroli and Prof. Vanmala Mali celebrated Raksha Bandhan by tying rakhis to the officers and jawans of C-60 Commando Force at Special Drive Team Office, Gadchiroli.
- P. Nilotpal, Additional S. P. Kumar Chinta, Yatish Deshmukh, CRPF Assistant Commandant Mohit Kumar, Gatta Officer-in-Charge Chetan Pardeshi, Zilla Parishad Digital School Jajawandi Principal Bedke and other police officers and jawans were present on the occasion.
