Policing Limitations

August 28, 2021

This week has been a tumultuous one for a docile city like ours. Within a week we witnessed two terrible crimes — an armed robbery which left an innocent shopper dead and the gang rape of a young woman at the foot of Chamundi Hill.  Most Mysureans were asking, “How could this happen in our…
