New Delhi: Days after the tragic terrorist attack in Pulwama, Delhi lieutenant governor Anil Baijal on Saturday laid stress on the need for bolstering security framework so that internal security challenges can be dealt with in a better way.

On the occasion of 72nd Raising Day of Delhi police, Mr Baijal paid homage to the slain CRPF jawans and expressed solidarity with their families. The L-G also hoped the speedy recovery of the personnel injured in the terrorist attack. “Along with the rest of the country, I salute the jawans who sacrificed their lives for the nation. This undoubtedly is an irreparable loss for the country and I express my condolence for the bereaved families and wish speedy recovery for the injured,” the L-G said.

 

Lauding the contributions of Delhi police, Mr Baijal asked the citizens to appreciate their consistent and selfless work so that they are encouraged and motivated to do more such works. Delhi police, he said, has been able to create a special place in the society and project a popular image by its excellent public service, he said. “People should acknowledge the selfless efforts of policemen in maintaining law and order, so that they are encouraged and motivated to do more such works. Police personnel are inseparable part of the society who work in adverse conditions and put their lives at risk for our security,” Mr Baijal said.

On the occasion, Delhi police commissioner Amulya Patnaik said fighting terrorism is the topmost priority of his squad. Apart from special cell, sharing inputs, holding inter-state police meets, raising specialised SWAT commando units comprising of men and women and cyber cell etc. have been integral mechanism to thwart any threat, Mr Patnaik said.
