Mangaluru, Sep 17: The valedictory of a month-long training for aspirants to the post of constables and sub-inspectors, was held at St Aloysius Gonzaga hall on Friday September 17.

Dharmadhikari of Dharmasthala Dr Veerendra Heggade lighted the lamp to begin the programme.

Addressing the gathering, Dr Heggade said, “Police commissioner N Shashi Kumar has become the son of Dakshina Kannada since taking over the commissioner’s post. It is always good to see his love towards Tulu language and its culture. It was a tough training for the aspirants for the last one month. Despite being tough, none of the aspirants stepped back midway which is always a good sign. It is a very good profession to serve the society.

“Unfortunately, a few movies project police for comic relief, while few movies highlight them in a respectable manner. It will dangerous if people’s mindset start changing towards police and take them lightly after watching such movies,” he said.

Police commissioner N Shashi Kumar welcomed the gathering. Soujanya Hegde compered the event.

DCP law and order Hariram Shankar, DCP Crime and traffic Dinesh Kumar, superintendent of police Sonawane Rishikesh Bhagwan, ANF officer B Nikhil, rector of St Aloysius College Fr Melvyn Joseph Pinto, director of Shanthi Kiran Fr Santhosh Rodrigues and others were present.

It may be recalled, on August 9, registration desk was set up in which 734 aspirants registered themselves. On August 13, screening test was done and aspirants were selected for training on August 16.

The training was inaugurated on August 21 with total 206 aspirants among which 115 were male and 91 female. As many as 162 aspirants were from Dakshina Kannada and rest from Udupi, Chikkamagaluru, Hassan and Shivamogga.

St Aloysius College provided classrooms, hostels and library for the aspirants during the training. Food was provided by Kadri, Mangaladevi and Kudupu temples, ISKCON, and St Aloysius College.
