      Usually appointment and transfers in police department are made through the politiclans from their relatives or by taking bribe and so police department is working for the politicians and trying to earn money at any cost. Interference in appointment /transfers of politicians should be stopped.

          Crime, particularly drugs, can not happen without connivance of police. Their behavior is worse than criminals. Police reforms are long overdue.

              The hands behind the peddler need to be exposed. The big fish always gets away.

                  It would not have been possible to smuggle drug without insider help. Here is the example. He is just a small fish in this trade. I hope STF will catch big fish then we will be able to curb this social evil .
