community policing units, public representatives, civil society members, socio-cultural, professional and political activists and elite attended the rally.

The speakers expressed satisfaction over continuous improvement of the law and order situation in the city and suggested gearing up activities of the community policing at all levels to ensure peace and tranquility in society.

Shushanto Bhowmick called upon members of the community policing of
different units for involving the common people and extending cooperation to the police forces in preventing drug abuse, terrorism, militancy and corruption.

“Coordinated efforts of the family members, common people and police could eliminate the social ills like terrorism, militancy and drug abuse, in establishing lasting peace and tranquility in society,” he said.

The chief guest put emphasis on strengthening the bonds and relations among the family members, including children and parents, so that no young child or youth could be derailed and involved with militant and terrorist activities.
