TRIBUNE PHOTO: SARABJIT SINGH Police prepare to undo halqabandi Big changes in police sub-divisions on the anvil, proposed plan to be final after notification Deepkamal Kaur Tribune News Service Jalandhar, May 6 The Jalandhar Police Commissionerate is learnt to have almost finalised its new proposal for the changes in the new police sub-divisions on the directions of the new Congress government. If these proposals are final, the changes in the sub-division areas will surely be drastic. It will mean that Congress MLAs will have to deal with three or four Assistant Commissioners of Police for dayto-day complaints coming in from people in their constituencies. While the areas of the police stations are largely being kept intact, three or four police stations currently falling in one constituency have been shuffled between as many police sub-divisions.

We are more of restoring the old police station area and doing a bit of rationalisation for the convenience of the police. The names of the sub-divisions will remain the same – Kartarpur, Adampur, Nakodar, Shahkot and Phillaur – after the name of the constituencies but there will be some mixing of areas across constituency boundaries. ❞ GURPREET SINGH BHULLAR, SSP Jalandhar Rural had been sought for changing areas ❝Our suggestions tooproposed that Birring and Paragpur of police stations.

It will also give quite a free hand to cops too, which was our poll plank. The plan As per the proposed plan which has also been okayed by the Deputy Commissioner and Commissioner, Jalandhar Division, the number of police sub-divisions will remain the same – five. Earlier, they were named after the name of their Vidhan Sabha constituencies —West, North, Central, Cantonment and Model Town (which too currently is a part of the Jalandhar Cantt Assembly seat). However, the new sub-divisions will now be called 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The proposed plan is that Police Sub-Division 1 will Constituency Jalandhar North Jalandhar Central Jalandhar West Jalandhar North Jalandhar Central Jalandhar West Jalandhar North Jalandhar Central Jalandhar West We have sent proposed plans Jalandhar Cantt (MODEL TOWN) after a series of meetings and Jalandhar Cantt (MODEL TOWN) discussions.

I think it rather more positively. If I have six complaints coming to me on a single day, I may have to move only two to each of the three ACPs of my area.

Satpal had been arrested on the charge of snatching by the police. Kotwali police station SHO said, “The man had been convicted to five years of imprisonment. This morning he want to take bath and while doing so, attempted to hang himself with the help of a cloth he had. Thinking that something was wrong, officials checked as to what harm had been done.

Deepak Kumar (42) hanged himself from a ceiling fan at his home in Avtar Nagar after he came to know through posts on the social media that his daughter Kajal (20), who had eloped with the son of a neighbour, had married him. SHO Balbir Singh said, “Since the daughter was an adult, an FIR couldn’t have been lodged in the case. TNS (West). The Sub-Division-3 will have Police Station-8 (North) and New Baradari (Central). The Sub-Division-4 will have Police Station-6 (Model Town), Police Station7 (Model Town) and Bhargo Camp (West). The Sub-Divi- order well, that too in a system which is now being made heterogeneous.

Central area splits into 4 sub-divisions, Cantt into 2 The above plan means that the Jalandhar Central area has been the most affected as all four police stations falling under it – Police Station-2, Police Station-4, Rama Mandi and New Baradari will split into four different sub-divisions. However, the Cantt constituency, which too has four police stations will be less affected as it will have its area moved into two sub-divisions – Police Station-6 and Police Station-7 going to SubDivision-4 and Police StationCantt and Sadar going to Sub-Division-5. Govt meritorious school sans regular principal Aparna Banerji Tribune News Service Jalandhar, May 6 While the Education Department had recently asked all teachers serving on clerical posts at the District Education Office or other non-teaching posts to move to their native schools, the Education Department has so far displayed scant regard to maintaining similar standards at the Meritorious School in Jalandhar. Ever since former principal KK Aeri moved out, the Meritorious School continues to be administered by a principal who has additional charge of the school. Massa Singh got the additional charge when he joined the school eight months back. Principal Massa Singh, who had been the District Education Officer (elementary), took additional charge of the Meritorious School after former principal KK Aeri resigned from the post on August 1 last year. While Aeri was formally relieved on September 30, Massa Singh took charge as principal within a month of Aeri’s resignation. A teacher in the district said, “The Meritorious School in any district is clearly the most important government school of the district. The ‘creamy-layer of students’ of the government schools study in a Meritorius School. It’s a dedicated job to handle the school. When teachers on deputation at other schools have been removed, the merit school principal also needs to be given whole and sole charge of the school because the dual responsibility takes a toll in the conduct of duties.” The Principal, Meritorious School, Jalandhar, Massa Singh, said, “I am just doing the job allocated to me by the Education Department. I am aptly attending to my duties here. Since the department has given me additional charge of the school, I continue with it. If I am relieved of the responsibility of the other school, I shall humbly accept it.” It is pertinent to note that former principal KK Aeri had left amidst much speculation, terming the tendering process at the school as the primary reason for his resignation. Aeri was also perturbed as the objections raised by him in regard to the quality of food being served in the school mess had remained unaddressed. The issue had been raised at the District Education Development Committee meetings repeatedly. The District Education Officer (secondary) Harinder Pal said, “So far, there is no direction to relieve the merit school principal of the present school or relieve the principal concerned from the additional charge since he is effectively conducting his duties. He can only be relieved if the department asks him to.” With 3 film awards, students launch a cine blitz DADA SAHEB PHALKE AWARDS Tribune News Service Jalandhar, May 6 Earning encomiums with their dazzling display of creativity, students of Lovely Professional University (LPU) have won awards at the prestigious annual 7th Dada Saheb Phalke Film Festival2017 in three categories.
