Widows of Haryana cops killed during duty running from pillar to post to get the promised compensations
In Haryana a Dalit widow of a cop, who was crushed to death by liquor mafia during those days when liquor was prohibited in the state, is running from pillar to post to get the promised relief by the state government.

Kalawati Devi's misery was main focus of Haryana Police Employees Association's convention held at Rohtak, home town of state's Chief Minister, Bhupinder Hooda. This Citizen Journalist who was invited to speak at the convention urged the CM to give Rs. One Crore compensation to the widow on the pattern of Delhi where chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had given Rs One Crore to a widow of a cop killed by liquor mafia. The crowd present during the event repeatedly endorsed the demand for Kalawati's help.

At the time of killing of Kalawati Devi's husband Bhim Singh she was told that a job could not be given to her as she was educationally unqualified while assuring her that her son would be accommodated once, he attains requisite age and educational qualifications. However after sixteen years she could not get job for her MBA son on flimsy ground of change of policy.

Dilawar Singh, President of Association also endorsed the demand adding that the families of all those cops killed during duty should be adequately compensated besides giving job to one member of the family.

While mentioning another case similar to Kalawati Devi, Dilawar Singh regretted that Haryana Govt. has so far not provided job to Vishal Kumar, son of a head constable Raj Singh, who was killed while chasing a gangster in Rohtak almost a decade back. It is said that Kumar's case was ordered to be kept pending till the time he necomes major in age.

During the convention Raj Singh's wife Mukesh, with a tearful eyes said that she had Chief Minister Hooda as well as the top cops on several occasions, but nobody is helping her and his son.

During the convention the police personnel also demanded pay scales on Punjab pattern, restoration of pension facilities and implementation of Dharmvir Commission's report.
