Families of 34 cops, killed while dealing with terrorism in late 1980s and early 1990s, were invited by Mansa SSP to hear their grievances and clear pending job applications.

"We initiated this to make these families feela connect with the department. A number of grievances were put forward , of which many were solved on the spot. Cases for jobs have been forwarded to the appropriate authority," said Mansa SSP Bhupinder Singh Khattra.

"After the death of my father in a bomb blast opposite Mansa police station, we were forced to leave our native Sher khan village. Lack of income also led us to take shelter with relatives.. Two years ago, I lost my legs in an accident and am now living on artificial limbs. I approached the department for a clerical job, but got no response," said Hardeep Kaur.

Heena, an engineer, daughter of Gurmel Singh of Bhagwanpur, said she had also sought a clerical job in the department, but was awaiting a response.
