I congratulate the department for that.” He said that police administration was playing a pivotal role in upholding and enforcing law to protect life, liberty, property, human rights and dignity of the common man. “The credit for ensuring peace in the state goes to police personnel, who have offered supreme sacrifices,” Singh said.
