Another side, we got the information that commanding officers, IPS, and others are using cops for their domestic chores. We called a meeting with DG, chief secretary, IG, and other leaders, to discuss the issue," Biren Singh said while speaking to the media.

The Manipur Chief Minister further went on to say that the IPS officer was using 14-15 cops for domestic chores at his house and along with peon, cook, and gardener, he was using 10-12 cops. He was also using 19 cops for making and repairing at his farmhouse.

Biren Singh also spoke to the police officers who were employed at his residence and he revealed that the cops told him that they were forcefully kept there and were not even permitted to go out.

"We have suspended the IPS officer and we will continue this drive. All that I want to say is they have been hired for police work. They should be respected and let them do the work for which they have been hired," the CM concluded.
