This is also a big failure of the system as they couldn’t even save an investigating police officer who has been an asset to the country. His death has shaken up the police department and it is a shame that 1 officer’s death was required to make them understand the inefficiency of the police force to save their fellow comrade. We hope that the lost soul gets his justice and the people who are responsible for such a shameful act get detained and further punished accordingly and we hope that such fiasco doesn’t happen again because we don’t need another person’s life to be lost. Police need to understand that such kinds of incidences put them in the bad limelight and people’s trust in the police department will get completely shattered.
