    Illegal sand transportation has to be thwarted however the behaviour of the STF is becoming increasingly arrogant and they feel they are a super unit because they have more fire power than the ordinary police. Actually they were created because the police could not function during the war in certain areas. But now the war is over and there is no need for their services anymore. The STF is no match to the firepower and training of the Army. Let the STF be disbanded and the Army take over its traditional role of assisting the police whenever it is needed.

    First fine the minister for riding a motor cycle without a helmet.

    The incident went out of hands when the transporters complained that their mobile phones were seized by STF. This is illegal. If STF acts within their parameters that may help everyone.
