“Beasts in uniform, as if they enjoy damaging public property. This is sheer hooliganism. No accountability at all. At least someone from the district administration should take cognizance of such incidents. Mohalla committees should apprise the concerned SHO and other district admins so that there will be no such loss to the civilian property in future.”
