Police are not the slaves of the corrupt politicians . They join the force to serve for the nation and for justice. But their powers are being misused.

He had to raise voice against corrupt politics. But he committed suicide and made a mistake because you have given them a chance. The police department has to take a stand boldly .

The politicians misuse the powers and target such officer’s. Think these days being sincere is also a curse.
