Girl students tie rakhis on Palamau police officer

Daltonganj: It was a rare Rakhi celebration in the backwaters of Palamau’s Japla. More than half a dozen girl students of the Boon Public School Japla led by its principal Sauvari  Mukherjee went to the police station Hussainabad (Japla) and tied rakhis on the hand of the officer-in-charge Ajay Singh. “Our students had made the rakhis with their own hands using discarded household items like wool, pearl, chiffon etc,” said Mukherjee. The girls were given sweets and Rs 1,000 in cash by the police officer. Sources said there is a paradigm shift in the attitude of women towards the police in Palamau which was earlier marred by fear due to the naxals in the area.
