Malkangiri: From timely rescue of people during floods to organising skill-development training for surrendered Naxals and transgenders, outgoing SP of Malkangiri district Jagmohan Meena has won many hearts.
Thus, the IPS officer's transfer to Angul during the recent IPS reshuffle left many teary-eyed. To make the officer's last day in office memorable, the jawans as well as locals left no stone unturned on Wednesday.
A video of the farewell ceremony shows a large gathering of people who garlanded the outgoing SP and carried him on their shoulders in a grand procession.
In his tenure as Malkangiri SP for over two years, Meena took many steps for maintaining law and order and curbing Maoist activities in the district, said locals. Under his leadership, the Gurupriya bridge was set up and General Elections were held in the erstwhile cut-off regions. Bidding an emotional adieu, locals said that they would miss him.
The procession was accompanied with the song Jay Jaykara from blockbuster movie Bahubali and crackers were burst while many danced to the beats of drums. The crowd also greeted the cop’s wife and son at the venue.
It is notable to mention here that Khilari Rishikesh Dnyandeo has been appointed as the new SP of Malkangiri.
