A policeman on duty

New Dheeli (name changed). In order to lift the sagging morale of the police force, Mr Dheeraj Kumar, Commissioner of Dheeli Police, himself harangued by one Dheila Aunty, has decided to launch the annual ‘Golden HAFTA Awards’ on lines of the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards.

However, unlike BAFTA, HAFTA is not an acronym.

This will not only bring the police force’s supreme duty (i.e. HAFTA collection) in sharper focus but also help the employees get over the temporary trauma of India Gate and Jantar Mantar skirmishes.

The ‘Golden HAFTA Awards’ will be given away in the following categories:
