The commander said the matter is so worse that he believes his officers should be ashamed of even putting their uniform to go around town.

He said that the officers should be careful about the firearms they carry around, that the same arms were purchased for them with the money gotten from the public.

Disu then asked why kill the people who are paying them and whose money financed their arms.

The RSS commander reminded the officers of a very important lesson they were taught in the police academy, that it is better to let robbers escape than kill one innocent person.

He also lamented that a few members of the force are spoiling the image of the police, questioning the need to carry corked guns around people.
