New Delhi: A well resourced library was set up at R K Puram Police station for the children of nearby slum areas. The police understanding the struggle of the students from weaker economic sections to focus on studies due to lack of peaceful atmosphere and resources came up with the idea to set up ‘Delhi Police Public Library‘. By providing the children a well equipped library and a peaceful and safe atmosphere the police are in fact keeping the children away from crime and other anti-social activities.
