BSF Jawan, Punjab Police Personnel Deployed To Perform “Marriage Duty” At IG Daughter’s Wedding Venue
According to a report by The Indian Express, several BSF personnel were made to perform a different “duty” at the BSF IG’s daughter’s marriage venue. BSF men in uniform were made to guide the guests in and around Nayagaon, along the roads leading to Forest Hill Resort in Chandigarh. Some were also deployed inside the resort. It was BSF IG PS Sandhu’s daughter’s marriage, who is posted in Subsidiary Training Centre, Bengaluru. The marriage was attended by important officials of BSF and Punjab Police.
To perform “marriage duties”, 16 BSF men reached the force’s Lakhnaur campus in Jammu. Apart from BSF personnel, men from Punjab Police, including those patrolling on the highway near Zirakpur were requisitioned for the wedding. A Punjab Police personnel added that 25 of them had come for the “marriage duty”.
SSP Kuldeep Chahal of SAS Nagar said Punjab Police personnel were deployed for official duty since the function was attended by many VIPs.
A BSF jawan said that apart from Jammu, other BSF personnel had also come from places like Bengaluru, Rajasthan and Gujarat for “marriage function duty” as they were told that “BSF Director Generals was also among the guests”. By the evening even a BSF bus was spotted emerging from the resort.
Pradeep Sharma, who claimed to be IG Sandhu’s liaison officer said that deploying BSF personnel at the venue was a part of the “protocol” since BSF DG K K Sharma was among the guests who attended the wedding. “Protocol has to be maintained during the visit of the BSF DG. You can confirm from BSF DG that he attended the function.”
When The Logical Indian got in touch with SAS Nagar SSP Kuldeep Singh Chahal, he no personnel from Punjab Police were deployed at the function. He further added that any such information is completely wrong.
The Logical Indian Take
The Logical Indian community condemns the actions of the IG PS Sandhu in deploying men from the BSF as well as Punjab Police at his daughter’s wedding. Deploying men to merely guide guests inside the resort and around it is not what these jawans are supposed to do. BSF jawans and Police personnel are meant to fight crimes and look after the security of the country and countrymen. The Logical Indian urges the concerned authority to look into the matter.
