“You should decide from your soul whether any person is at fault or not while registering the FIR. An innocent person should have to not spend even an hour in the police station, while the culprits must not be spared,” Channi said, while interacting with police personnel at the Punjab Armed Police (PAP) headquarters in Jalandhar.

“The will to empower police officials is needed. The government’s backing is needed to act against big criminals. I had also urged asked former chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh in this regard,” he said.

Deputy chief minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, who holds the home portfolio, acting director general of police Siddharth Chattopadhyay and PAP DGP Iqbal Preet Singh Sahota were present as the chief minister heard out the police personnel.

Channi announced a revised uniform allowance for police personnel, free travel in public transport, risk allowance for personnel working in bomb disposal wings, increased diet money for personnel playing sports from 150 to 250 a day; 250 new vehicles for the police department; and 1 crore for renovating the PAP sports ground. He said the Punjab government will set up a police Sanjh Kendra at the international airports in Amritsar and Chandigarh.
