Police trainees call off strike, join Yatra duties
Passing-Out Parade Delayed Due To Law And Order Problem: Principal
Ganderbal, June 21: The agitating trainees at Police Training School (PTS) Manigam in Lar area Friday called off their hunger strike after which authorities deputed them to different places in Ganderbal district and its surroundings on Yatra duty.
Police sources said that Inspector General of Police (IGP) Armed has been appointed enquiry officer to probe the matter and a case under FIR No. 121/2013 under section 341/336/147 has been registered in police station Ganderbal against those trainees who were leading the protests at PTS campus on Wednesday night.
According to the trainees, the authorities are avoiding their passing-out parade in violation of the police norms.
“Authorities are violating the police norms as according to procedure the passing-out parade is to be conducted only after nine months of training, while 17 months have passed and we are still waiting for the passing-out parade. We have no objection in being deployed for duty wherever the authorities want, our only demand is early conduct of passing out parade, allocation of good ration according to schedule and good conduct from our school heads as we are being forced to eat substandard food,” a trainee wishing not to be named told Greater Kashmir.
Denying the allegations of misconduct with trainees and providing of substandard food to them, Bakar Samoon (SP) who is the Principal of PTS Manigam told Greater Kashmir that things have become normal and we have deputed the boys on Yatra duty. However, he admitted that there was some delay in passing-out parade and the same will be conducted in near future.
“Actually due to law and order problem in Kashmir we could not conduct passing out parade which was scheduled to be conducted in March this year. There is no need to make noise about this small issue as we are a disciplined force. I swear that we are giving best food to the trainees and I treat them like my children,” Samoon added.
Pertinently, the trainees at PTS Manigam on Wednesday night staged protests against delay in their passing-out parade and against alleged substandard food provided by the school authorities to them.
