Fazilka, April 10
Sukhbir Badal, Deputy Chief Minister, today ordered the attachment of Arniwala police station with Fazilka sub-division and thus gave a partial relief to its residents, who have been protesting for the past many days against reduction of its territorial jurisdiction during the reorganisations of police stations.
Badal directed a senior functionary of the Punjab police to complete the process of attaching Arniwala police station, now attached with Jalalabad sub-division, with Fazilka sub-division immediately.
Shushil Gumber, president, Bar Association, said that though a few villages, which were detached from Fazilka sub-division were still with Abohar sub-division, the decision in connection with the fact that whether agitation, which was going on so far against it, must be continued or not, would be taken by the representatives of various organisations, who had formed a common platform to fight against the injustice done to Fazilka.
