Palamu (Jharkhand), Dec.12 (ANI): An Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) in Jharkhand resigned on Sunday as the government failed to fix his salary.
Interacting with mediapersons here, Ronald Jawahar Hansda said the government has failed to fix salaries of six officers who were deputed from the central paramilitary force to the state police to carry out anti-Maoist operations.
Hansda further said it was unfortunate that even after 14 months of deputation, the state government had not acted, which in turn prompted him quit his assigned post.
"We have spoken to our Director General of Police about the pay and allowances. We had been demanding for higher pay and allowances, as it has not been fixed for one year. If a police official's life is financially secured, then he is ready to face any challenge of the world," said Hansda.
He said better incentives would encourage police officers to undertake daring challenges, an aspect the authorities ought to realise.
Hansda, however, added that if the demanded increase in salary is sanctioned, he is ready to return to work. By Neelmani (ANI)
