intendent or Assistant Superintendent, provided they are of good conduct and learning. The starting pay of a detective may be fixed at Rs.15 and it may be increased gradually. To each police station must be attached two or three detective officers. The detective branch must form a separate branch in the police administration. The detectives need not be trained in drill, etc. It is enough if they detect crimes.
Murder in Nellore - The same paper says that it clearly follows from the murder committed in Nabobpet (Nellore) that the badmashes there and the other parts of Nellore are not in the least afraid of the police. This is so because the police force consists of men who are indifferent, illiterate, and unrighteous and devoid of all humanity. The authorities must bear this in mind and must try to reform the police everywhere. To every police station in Nellore must be attached a number of detectives. The number of constables in each station must also be increased. Though it is easy to see that a native police inspector will do well in Nellore, it is not possible to understand why a European or a Eurasian inspector has been appointed for a long time. Natives can do much better in bringing offenders to justice. At any rate, if badmashes like those who have committed the said murder are not properly punished, the people will have no safeguard and will be constantly apprehensive of danger.

It is the duty of the authorities to find them out and punish the offenders.
