    Did any one dared to find out why he was sent from Borella to Hanwella in the first place. Did Hanwella comes under the jurisdiction of Botella area??

    A police officer has jurisdiction over entire country. Police areas have been created only for the duty convenience. he can be called in to any area irrespective of his duty station . that's the law

    Don't act like a fool. Police DIGs do allocate people they think might handle it where ever location is.

    Whether it is policeman or a civilian a person has been killed. The killer must be found and the legal process must follow.
