“He was not at his duty post during the incident. He only went to get something at a store near the scene of operation and the criminals saw him as a threat; they decided not to take the risk of allowing him walk.

“But I can assure them that they won’t go unpunished, as we will surely get them, because never again will a police officer be killed, maimed. Within a month we have lost two policemen but we want those who are enemies of peace to know that we are ready for them,” she said.
