Police in Dhading district are organising cultural programmes to make people aware about violence and human trafficking in the wake of the devastating April 25 earthquake and its subsequent aftershocks.
Earlier, people would perceive that police personnel with sticks and guns are only to arrest criminals and to maintain peace and order in the society.
But entertaining awareness programmes organised by cultural teams of Nepal Police in coordination with the District Police Office of Dhading in different rural parts of the district to make people aware have changed people’s attitude to police
