“The officer who is currently recuperating in an undisclosed hospital alongside his victim, has not been able to give his statement because he is still unconscious as a result of the beating he received and injuries sustained when the mob attacked him at the scene of incident.

“The CP further directed that as soon he regains consciousness, he should be served with the query. The command has never and would never tolerate the use of firearm outside the provisions of Force Order 237,” the spokesman said. (NAN)
