i wonder if police are now being attacked far more… everyday we hear of the death of officers like mr karkare, ashok kamte and others, who die by the motivated mujahideen. some officers are beaten by the public venting their anger on them. they are beaten because they pick up people for breaking the law and the like. i even wonder if they are properly dressed. i recently saw a constable wearing kolhapuri chappals. god forbid they are chasing someone and there is alive wire, they would be shocked on the job…as electricity travels fastest through these footwear. ideally they shoudl wear rubber chappals so that they are safe even if overhead wires break, or they accidentally step ona wet live wire. i firmly feel that superiors should look into increased violence on the police force dress them appropriately for duty and look after them if they receive burns or wounds while on duty. they require good nurses to look after them and inject them with proper medicines.
