He said that the people of the Rangkai locality, after apprehending the alleged molester of a 19 years old girl at Rangkai, had handed the culprit to the police but after dark they demanded the police to hand over the culprits to them again which ,the OC said, the police can never allow.
The OC asked the people to be reasonable and shun those kinds of meaningless demands which obstruct the law enforcement agency from carrying out their duty while at the same time promising the people of CCpur that the police will see to it that the law will take its own course swiftly. On On being asked about claims that the CCpur Police is trigger happy during such public outbursts, the OC responded that the police had to resort to blank firing on November 27, as the mob pelts stones and anything and also in the past, as the mob used stones and anythings they could lay their hand on to attack the police.
