The DGP was accompanied by Special DGP Law and Order Arpit Shukla and Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Khanna Amneet Kondal.
DGP Gaurav Yadav, while symbolically pinning the star on the shoulders of Jagjiwan Ram, wished him good luck. “The added star on your shoulders comes with a bigger responsibility,” he said, while encouraging the newly promoted Inspector to work harder and perform with dedication, sincerity, and honesty.
Special DGP Arpit Shukla termed Insp Jagjiwan Ram as a role model for the 80000 strong Police force and exhorted all the field Police officers/officials to do their duty selflessly and with full devotion to make Punjab a crime-free and drug-free state.
