“A boy’s salute becomes a discussion point but the rolling tears of thousands of #DreamzGKFraud Victims has no space in our media world, @CPBlr sir look at our plight and suffering, punish the Cheaters and help us recover our money @CMofKarnataka @CIDKarnataka @PratapReddyC,” reads a comment on the viral video. Another comment on the same post read: “A rare cop in Police service and a rarer picture in Indian history.
