Mr. Rajendra was speaking, while sanctioning scholarships of more than Rs. 3 lacs for 43 wards of 27 martyrs, who have contributed towards the security and integrity of the Nation by sacrificing their precious lives. He said that the martyrs have played a vital role at different fronts of policing and it was due their supreme sacrifices that we have succeeded in bringing normalcy in the State. It is prime duty of Jammu and Kashmir Police Parivar to take care of these wards and lead them towards a prosperous life, said Mr. Rajendra.
DGP disclosed that the Organisation, realizing its responsibility, has established Central Police Welfare Fund with a missionary aim to provide succour to these wards to continue their studies. He said that the scholarships have been sanctioned in favour of the wards, studying in different classes of various technical and educational institutions. The scholarships have been sanctioned for the academic year 2014-2015, DGP added.
