Continuing, the DC said that the Police cannot use force while performing their duties as India is a democratic country and added that the Police were working under stress as they have to work patiently without using the force to maintain law and order to ensure peace and harmony.

Stating that this had led to severe stress among the Police force, the DC called upon the Police personnel to de-stress themselves by taking up hobbies and by participating in sporting activities.

The DC further said that the Police Department celebrate only on three occasions like Annual Police Sports Meet, Ayudha Puja and New Year, as during other festivals, the Police personnel would be busy providing security to the people so that they (people) celebrate the festivals peacefully. But the Mysuru Police cannot celebrate Ayudha Puja as they would be busy in providing security for Dasara which is the Naada Habba, he added.
