This case is just a small picture of the 'awful' state of police reforms in India.

In India, on average, we have no less than three policemen assigned to every VIP against the total availability of one policeman for a thousand ordinary citizens.

The police in most states are being used to promote the political aims and agendas of parties and governments rather than to catch criminals or provide justice to citizens.

This is why no state is interested in the creation of an independent and empowered police.
