The former cop told the media, “Last year, the school had invited me to attend a programme as the chief guest. Out of curiosity, I had asked them about the school’s history and they told me that three former students of the school had gone on to become Assam’s chief minister. I also learnt that the school didn’t have a maths teacher. So, I committed that I would try to help them a bit. I am doing it for pleasure.”
“There is no point taking too many classes unless the students develop an interest in the subject. They will have to first comprehend the intricacies of the subject. Some are doing very well but it will be too early to comment on the outcome. I am happy that they are taking interest in the subject. I don’t know how long I will keep sharing the knowledge”, Sahay added.
The retired DGP did his post-graduation in physics with maths and statistics as two other subjects as well he has the degree in law also.
“I was one of the few officers who had helped set up the CBI training academy in Ghaziabad which is now a centre of excellence. During that period, I underwent training in India as well as abroad to become a police trainer – trainer in police subjects. So, that is basically educating people. Those things have helped me. What I am doing now is not teaching but helping people understand a subject,” Sahay said.
In his tenure as the DGP, there was not a single major case of violence recorded.
