Police is the subject of State list that is why every state has a Power to make laws regarding the police. Public order is listed as the first state function in the seventh schedule, which is then immediately followed by police, including village and railway police. The third entry is justice administration. The police serve as a tool for maintaining both the rule of law and public order. Our culture has had a police system since childhood, but there were no defined rules in place to govern how the police would function at the time. The current situation calls for police reform. But it only causes controversy when high-profile instances are brought up or prominent figures are apprehended. When governments give affidavits of compliance in court, they have to follow it up on the ground and stop the biased policing, the shoddy investigations, the corruption and beatings in police stations. Otherwise, the affidavits are just so much paper.
