Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday appealed to the people to respect policemen as they were ‘friends and not enemy’ while telling the force to handle violent situations calmly. He was speaking at the 73rd Raising Day of Delhi Police.

The police ensures peace and security in the country without religion and caste considerations and needs to be respected, the Minister said.

“It (police) helps when needed. It is not an enemy of anyone. It is a friend in maintaining peace and tranquility. So it should be respected. I appeal to the people that those who criticise the police should be heard. There is no problem in it. But, we should not overlook the fact that over 35,000 policemen have sacrificed their lives in protecting the country since Independence,” Amit Shah said.

Since 1991, 30 Delhi policemen have died in the line of duty.

He also recalled the sacrifices of five Delhi Police Constables who lost their lives while protecting Parliament during a terror attack there on December 13, 2001.

He mentioned late Delhi Police Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma who lost his life in the September 19, 2008 Batla House encounter with terrorists.

Sharma was awarded the highest peace-time gallantry medal, Ashok Chakra, on January 26, 2009.

Pointing out that the Delhi Police was established by Sardar Patel, the Minister said that the force had managed to fulfil the expectation of the great leader who wanted it to be calm while dealing with provocative incidents and also ensure protection to the citizens from hooligans.

“Because of Delhi Police’s alertness, the capital city is able to organise several big events,” Shah said.

Stressing on women security, Shah said that the Home Ministry has approved 9,300 CCTVs for Delhi Police for women security. “I hope these facilities will improve Delhi Police efficiency to enable the force to ensure better security in the national capital,” he said.
