Incidentally, the Kerala Police’s presence on social media comes even as other police forces have imposed curbs on the use of TikTok.

Gujarat DGP Shivanand Jha recently issued a circular saying that police personnel, even if not on duty or in uniform, should abide by the code of conduct deemed appropriate for them as a member of the police force.
