Inspector-General of Police (Eastern Range) H.N. Satyanarayana Rao has instructed all police officials to ensure that a parade is organised twice a week at every police station. Inaugurating the Davangere district police sports meet here on Thursday, Mr. Rao said it was mandatory to hold a parade every Monday and Tuesday, irrespective of the strength of the station. “I doubt whether all sub-inspectors and inspectors are aware of this,” he said.

The parade was a time-tested activity for policemen to keep fit and stay alert.
