He said it wasn’t right for casually dressed police officers to show up on the doorstep of a home after 12 PM looking for an individual looked for over a middle class wrongdoing.

“A 12 PM strike to capture an individual needed for a business wrongdoing isn’t right. In the event that it is murder, drug dealing or other genuine cases, it is justifiable,” he said.

Sundramoorthy said the cops engaged with an attack on a private home at Logan Road here as of late ought to be condemned.

On July 12, a lady took to Facebook Live in the wake of seeing a gathering of cops outside her home with bolt cutters, requesting she open up or have the barbecue entryway prised open.

The cops, he said, ought to have held a stakeout earier and done knowledge work to decide whether the suspect was at the condominium in any case.

“It seems the attacking party was not coordinated and didn’t accomplish sufficient knowledge work. The cops ought to be reproved,” he told FMT.

Change of police strike SOPs required

Give them access, then, at that point telephone the closest police headquarters

Nonetheless, he said, the individuals who experienced a police search could ask the cops to show their character cards and afterward request five minutes with the goal that their personality can be confirmed by the closest police headquarters.

“The police are permitted to look without warrants, particularly in security offenses, and cases including taken property and different issue. They can come in to look through your home.

“I prescribe that you permit them to come in first or it very well may be interpreted as a check, which is an offense under the Penal Code. You can settle on the telephone decision to the closest station when they are in the house.

“Put the approach the speaker and let them hear the discussion. On the off chance that they are genuine cops, they will remain. In the event that they are shams, they will make a run for it,” he said.
