The felicitation was also followed by a 'party' for the local VIPs and the police personnel in and around including the Cheluru, Huliyaru, Tavarekere among other stations, sources informed TNIE.

The DySP Kumarappa had taken up the initiative to arrange the event, many claimed

"The police who had been beating up the public for gathering have themselves broke the rules. The PSI Nirmala had even beat up the residents at Seegalahalli village when they were performing pooja at a Vinayaka temple a month ago," criticized a resident.
