Dhangri, (Jammu and Kashmir), [India], Jan. 29 : Under civic action programme, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has provided basic facilities in the government higher secondary school in Jammu and Kashmir's Dhangri to help the students from poor families.

Danesh Kumar, the commandant of CRPF's 72 battalion, said this programme is aimed at providing assistance to those who want to study further but are unable to do so due to financial or infrastructure issues.

Mohammad Alyas, a school staff, expressed his delight over the assistance from the CRPF while pointing out that infrastructure was a major problem faced by the students in the school.

"The CRPF after adopting our school has helped in solving many of our problems. They provided the students with computers and furniture.
