Not a cop's job. Yet he did it. Cops come in all hues and colours...good, bad, ugly.— D Roopa IPS (@D_Roopa_IPS) September 26, 2019
When they go extra mile let's acknowledge. Doesn't mean that people stop questioning them when they go wrong. Both required. https://t.co/qNulsEu6KW

Some people also expressed disappointment that a cop was forced to do work that should have been done by civic bodies and tagged the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike
Was it shown to BBMP? For quick action definitely yes Policers can support at the same time was it informed and intimated #BBMP to arrive and help. @BBMPCOMM#bbmpcomm if we start clearing dumps and make proper water flows, we won't come across such situations— Sushma Sangondimath (@sush0907) September 26, 2019
