Saturday, November 23, 2019, 12:46 PM
The police in Rajasthan's Alwar withdrew a directive requiring nine Muslim personnel in the force to shave-off their beards, hours after it was issued on Thursday. Superintendent-of-Police Anil Paris Deshmukh had taken the controversial-decision in a supposed move to ensure that the policemen in question "look unbiased" while on duty. The order was apparently reversed on the basis of objections from the policemen concerned.
