  1. Mr Pramod is very honest Inspecto and I know this Personallyr. Finally Policemen stood up against the corrupt system where Politician play hide and seek game. I am proud of every Policeman who stood up for truth. Every NGO should join and find out who pressured Mr Murugan to take this action, and punish Mr Pramod. Every Tax payer has right to know who influenced this action against Mr.Pramod. Where are these Hindu Organizations fought for causes.
    First of all Mr Murugan should see the condition of Police Station in which Policemen are working in that station. He did not even care that in what condition His subordinates are working. Walls are ready to fall and crush the Policemen to death.
    We should contact Home department in Delhi and find out the fact. If this kind of interference comes in the arrest of Criminals,then what safety we public have here in Mangalore. Dear Mangaloreans please wake up for your safety and fight to find out the truth.
    We citizens had high respect for Mr Murugan…
    I am requesting AAP to interfere to find the truth in punishing the Honest and strict Inspector Pramod.

  2. What ppl has to do with police department’S internal issues, this practice of the “Public” (all very well know who is this public) is dangerous for society. Police personal will have soft corner about particular community and it will affect them discharging their duty unbiased. Police department or any dept. should not bow to particular organization demand or else it will create chaos and confusion in long run which is very threatening for the development of the city.
