Police in Tamil Nadu have launched fitness programme for the police personnel who are suffering from obesity. About sixty policemen attended the programme.
The two-day training programme, which began on Saturday was initiated after a survey established that several policemen suffered from obesity, due to lack of fitness regime and proper food habits.
The sub-inspectors and constables who underwent the programme were hopeful of a positive result.
"During my appointment, I was only 60 kilograms weight but now I am 85 kilograms and I hope after this programme I will be able to reduce my weight by five kg. We will continue this kind of training even after this camp is over," said sub-inspector Maria Jayaseelan Raj.
The programme will be continued for the next six months and another such batch of 60 police personnel have enrolled.
