Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Mar 1: There is information that the Jaguar car belonging to certain persons accused in a case, which reportedly was sold during November last when it was with the police, was seen moving around the city even thereafter. Therefore, it has been decided to conduct an investigation based on the global positioning system (GPS) of the said car.

Sources said that a senior police officer had moved around the city in the said car. He also used to take it to his home. Thereafter, the car was found parked in the residence of a middleman at Falnir, sources added. The person who stuck the car deal happens to be a middleman based in the city who has always been keeping contact with police officers arriving in the city. He may be questioned. All those who received notices so far will be questioned at the Bengaluru office of the criminal investigation department.

    Concerned police personnel should be stripped of their ranking and imprisoned like common citizens and booked under Section 378 of IPC Act. And we have to put our trust in the men and women who serve our country? It's ridiculous suspending them.

    What a play is going on here.I can only advice this entrepreneur ,when he can afford such a car ,I think he can afford a good lawyer too.make it with a lawyer and let the things clear ,instead of this cat and dog play with police.Police too wanted to show up or wanted to sit in such a car ?What a shame .Whom to believe these days in a critical time? I think whole Police department must be cleaned and put out .renew the Dept.New police from other countries .or state like Mumbai.
