KOZHIKODE: The policemen in Kozhikode are all set to learn Hindi in order to handle the cases of migrant labourers. The Hindi classes for policemen began with 60 police students at the city control room hall, last day. The second batch will begin at Mavoor station, on Thursday. A total of 40 students have registered for classes there. The scheme will also be implemented in all the police stations in Kozhikode district. City police commissioner A Akbar is in charge of the scheme.

The language training is being organized in association with the Rashtrabhasha Hindi Prachar Sabha. The fees is Rs 100 per hour. A batch is of three months’ duration. The classes are scheduled from 9:30 am till 3 pm. The course will be supervised by policemen V Suresh Kumar and Shamana Ahamed.

“The criminal cases in the name of migrant labourers are rising in Kerala. Those in duty are unable to register cases clearly and prepare the FIR. Even if someone calls for help, language becomes a barrier. That is why, we have begun Hindi classes”, said A C Kunjumoinkutty, control room assistant commissioner. “The decision was made after the continuous demand by the police association”, said V P Pavithran, district secretary, police association.
