Demystifying the police and increasing the forums of interaction between police and citizens can help reimagine the role of the police, says retired IPS officer Meeran Chadha Borwankar.
Five accused policemen have been arrested in the Jayaraj-Bennix murder case, but since giving her statement, the woman constable has not appeared in public.
The Crime-Branch CID on Wednesday slapped murder charges on six people, including the two sub-inspectors, as it took over the probe into the case.
Two sub-inspectors and two head constables have been suspended in connection with the incident.
An activist who released a video critical of the police shootings, has been missing since the day he held a news conference in Chennai.
Meanwhile, no reports of fresh violence was reported from Thoothukudi on Friday.
The NHRC also observed that standard procedure was not followed by the police when they opened fire.
