This noble act was started by Kalkaji SHO Sandeep Ghai and his men a week by feeding the birds and monkeys at Anand Mai Marg and Kabootar Chowk near C R Park every day at 7 am. The news was confirmed by a senior official and was quoted saying “Since people were not able to venture out due to lockdown, many good samaritans who used to often feed birds and animals could not continue. So, we noticed hungry monkeys venturing into residential colonies in search of food.”
Soon this led to station house officer of Kalkaji and his unit to feed the birds and monkeys with ‘gud’ (jaggery) and ‘chana’ (chickpeas). Also seeing the officers doing such a noble cause was soon joined by Kirana Market Association, Mani Ram Aggarwal and the owner of Aggarwal Sweet.
As of now they feed hungry monkeys, birds and cows apart from providing food to poor people. The Police officer daily purchase bananas, ‘gud’ and ‘Chana’ and feed around 400-500 monkeys and 50-70 cows on Anandmai Marg and Ravi Daas Marg. Police’s also motivated RWAs of colonies in Kalkaji, Govindpuri and Amar colony to join the initiative and feed stray dogs in their locality.
