The Antop Hill police are on an education drive. Personnel from this police station identified 18 students from various slums who dropped out of school and are either working to support their families or are unemployed. They have now been admitted to a night school.
Shamsher Pathan, incharge of the police station, said, we first did a survey about dropouts in our jurisdiction. We called them and their parents to the police station and counseled them. They then agreed to continue their studies. He added that some parents had tears in their eyes after the police personnel told them that they would pay all the fees and provide uniforms and stationery. We don’t want these children to become drug addicts or roam around like many unemployed youth do. So, we contacted the office bearers of Allana Municipal night school. The school authorities were also forthcoming and these 18 students have started going to school, Pathan added. The boys have been admitted to class V to class VII. We aim that these students at least pass class X or XII. We will later see if we could help them find jobs. As of now, we have given them some books and notebooks. Next week we will be distributing uniforms to them, said Pathan. He added that these boys are being given training in Urdu, Marathi and spoken English. We are also trying to contact some shop owners who could employ these students so that while learning, they can earn as well, he said. The Antop Hill police have roped in an educationist, Saleem Alware, who is visiting the school to check the students’ academic activities twice a week. We are hoping to get the results soon. We patrol the entire area so we know about many children who quit studies and do not work, leading to fights at home due to financial crisis, a police officer added.
