कुछ पुलिसवालों की थाना कैम्पस में यह वल्गर एवं बेपरवाह फूहड़ प्रस्तुति।
रक्षक के रूप में भक्षकों का यह भयावह चेहरा।

“This vulgar and careless sloppy presentation of some policemen in the police station campus. This is the sinister face of the devourers as protectors. Jharkhand has really been put on a powder keg by Hemant, the accidental prince of Soren Sultanate. Tribal society and country will remember him like Jaichand. Wake up youth of Jharkhand,” Mr Marandi tweeted.
Departmental action has been initiated against all five policemen in this matter.
