Students interact with cops to mark Raising Day

Bhayandar : As a part of the Maharashtra Police Raising Day celebrations, students from various educational institutions, along with members of local social organisations, visited the Kashimira police station on Monday where they were told about self-defense techniques and explained the technical aspects of using weapons in the police armoury.

“It was very exciting and educative experience for us, as we had only seen these weapons in movies and this was the first opportunity we got to see them up-close,” said a student.

Since 1961, Maharashtra Police has been celebrating January 2 as Raising Day, marking the ceremony where former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru presented the police flag as the symbol of the state police for the first time.
