He stated that the officer, after necessary orderly room proceedings by the police disciplinary committee, would be demoted for exhibiting such shameful and unprofessional conduct, while the officer in charge of the unit had been summoned for official query for lack of supervision.

“The disciplinary actions taken against the erring officer underscore the Command’s unwavering commitment to maintaining the highest standards of professionalism, transparency, and integrity among its personnel, while effectively discharging its lawful duties and entrenching public trust and confidence,” the PPRO stated.
