Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, May 8: Ex-Police men League discussed a number of issues pertaining to the welfare of retired police officials, in a meeting held here today under the chairmanship of Deputy Superintendent (retd), KS Sambyal.
In a lengthy discussion, speakers alleged that some police personnel are in the grip of serious ailments requiring costly treatment that they cannot afford and they are expecting some help from their parent Departments.
The League repeatedly requested DGP, J&K to take SRO 458-P dated October 13, 1999 with the Government for revival, as it protects and takes care of all the problems of retired police personnel.
The league members demanded that on spot payment of Rs 5000 be made to the family of police personnel for last rites through a special representative of Police Department in the event of death of a retired police official.
Moreover, all the members expressed strong resentment against the way adopted by the Government for the physical verification of pensioners and their pension books. They added that all the retirees are the senior citizens of the State and feel embarrassment while standing several hours before the treasury offices.
Those who participated in the meeting were retired SSPs, Ch Chirag-ud-Din, Ch Bachan Singh and retired SPs, SM Koul, R K Bali, VP Gupta, PR Sharma and many others.
