Two-days emergency passes could be procured by organisations, not individuals

Meanwhile, Bengaluru Police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao, IPS said that two-day passes can be procured by organisations and not individuals. "Emergency passes for two days could be procured by organisations, not individuals from their police station to disburse salary," tweeted Rao.

"Half-baked knowledge is always dangerous, you are having food at your dining table means the essential services supply chain is maintained by authorities. Please do not try to create panic by questions without any application of mind," Nimbalkar said.
