Army to Train 350 Personnel for Anti-Terrorism
HYDERABAD: Army is to impart antiterrorism training to 350 police personnel, plans per Sindh Police.
This was stated by Sindh DIG police (training) Dr Jamil Ahmed while addressing the first passing-out parade of 1,085 policemen, including 37 policewomen, at the recruitment training centre (RTC) here on Wednesday.
He said that the police training department had proposed to the Sindh government to allocate Rs150 per recruit for food in the mess of the centre and after the approval, free food would be provided to recruits.
He said the government was trying to impart quality training to policemen and added that they would be given counterterrorism training so that they could protect the life and property of people.
He said that following verification of policemen, salaries to those who were recently recruited would be given. He admitted that this process was delayed, but said there was always room for improvement.
Answering a question, he said the Sindh government did not provide funds regarding mess expenses at the training centre, although the Punjab government allocated Rs150 for each recruit towards food during the training. A similar proposal was sent to the Sindh government to seek such allocations, he said.
Earlier, addressing the parade, he urged recruits to perform their duty diligently and with devotion to serve people. RTC Principal Nisar Ahmed Brohi said the centre had been working in Badin and was shifted to Hyderabad in March 2014.
He said the appointment of a doctor was needed in the centre while two buses for transportation were required.
Hyderabad SSP Irfan Baloch, Deputy Commissioner Fayyaz Jatoi and other police officers were also present.
