The anti-terror Mission Mrutyunjay, which was kick started in the city during the tenure of the then police commissioner Satyapal Singh, but was aborted after his transfer from the city, has been re-restarted in order to create awareness among the college and school students in the city.
In an order issued by the incumbent police commissioner, Gulabrao Pol, the anti-terror mission has been resumed at educational institutions located in the city with immediate effect.
In 2008, the ambitious project was launched by Satyapal Singh in order to strengthen the fight against the terrorism and create awareness among the students and citizens.
“Under the mission, at every school and college Mrutyunjay clubs should be formed with immediate effect and one nodal officer should be appointed who can arrange the awareness programme against terrorism periodically,” stated the order.
The diktat also stated that nodal officer can be an existing staff of the school or college and it will be his responsibility to invite police officers, retired IPS officers, retired army officers, authors and people from noted NGOs to guide the students against the terrorism.
A police officer said that the Mrutyunjay clubs would help develop communal and social harmony among the youth. They will also help in strengthening the bond between the police and the youth.
